The Fennimore Municipal Pool’s intermediate pool will be closed for the 2014 season, per a memo to be reviewed by the Fennimore Common Council next week.

Director of Public Works Dennis Biddick reports the intermediate pool is suffering from a significant leak in its supply line. In addition, a state inspection last year indicated the pool was severely low in chlorine levels.

“This pool cannot be used again in its present condition,” Biddick writes. “The existing water line simply cannot supply enough chlorinated water to the pool to create safe chlorine levels to properly disinfect the pool.

“The intermediate pool must be closed, repaired or replaced.”

The Council will review the memo during a meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 27 at 7 p.m. at the Fennimore Memorial Building’s Council Chambers.

Residents interested in learning more regarding plans for the 2014 season and the future of the intermediate pool are urged to attend.
