A bunch of kids in Yakima would love to be swimming in the Martin Luther King Jr. Park community swimming pool. It's been proposed and on Tuesday the Yakima City Council is expected to hire a consulting firm to give the city three different designs to discuss. Yakima City Parks and Recreation Manager Ken Wilkenson says "how do you fund something like that? Grant dollars, capital dollars? That's all part of the discussion as we move forward."
On Tuesday the city council will talk specifically about the $35,000 cost of the consulting work and where the money will come from. The council meets at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday at city hall.
