City Council to Discuss Pools Tuesday
The Yakima City Council will take up a seasonally appropriate topic during their regular meeting Tuesday night.
The council will be talking about the need for a new or upgraded city pool facility. The city must decide whether it wants to invest in a new indoor facility or sink more cash into the aging Lions Pool to get it up to standards.
Yakima City Manager Tony O’Rourke says city voters in November have a chance to vote for a charter amendment that would dedicate $750,000 a year to the parks and recreation department. That could help with city pools. A new indoor facility could cost the city $8 million-$10 million.
One of the proposed sites would be at the city-owned Fisher Park golf course on South 40th Avenue.
The council meets at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
