Manager updates on needed pool repairs, trail project

Repairs to the St. Marys Community Pool and an update on the Rails to Trail project encompassed a portion of City Manager Dave Greene's regular activity report presented at a recent City Council meeting.Greene met with Ken Wolfe from the St. Marys Recreation Board to review previous proposals and a feasibility study on Memorial Park's St. Marys Community Pool. He stated he has not reviewed the information since 2008. The initial proposal put repairs at a cost of $4-$8 million. This included repairs to the bathhouse and completely demolishing and rebuilding the entire complex.Greene said the city cannot undertake such a costly project, however after reviewing the proposal they can do improvements to just the swimming pool for less than $500,000.
