City Manager Mark Schwieterman said the project will involve the replacement of the pool deck and the surrounding locker room areas.
“This is the indoor pool. It involves complete replacement of the pool deck around the pool as well as into the men’s and women’s locker rooms,” he said. “It will also include drainage work in the locker rooms to improve conditions there.”
The work will also involve replacing attachments to the deck so future work will be easier to complete.
“We will be replacing attachments to the deck with stainless steel attachments so when we reattach ladders and the dive board and things like that it will be done in a proper fashion,” Schwieterman said.
