Council Approves Final Construction Drawings
The City Council has approved the final construction drawings for the new and remodeled swimming pool and bath house as presented by the Swimming Pool Design and Negotiations Committee. These plans and specifications are currently out for bid, which are due Thursday Sept. 15 at 2:00 pm, after which time we will know approximately what the new pool may cost. We will be analyzing the numbers and will have a report for the Council. It is anticipated we will start removing the two smaller pools shortly after that with reconstruction starting in early October.
Even the smallest splash can build the biggest wave!
The Fennimore Area Foundation is coordinating the effort to raise the money for a new community swimming pool. The new pool will be located at the same location as the current pool, corner of Adams Street and 7th Street.
Gifts from the community are vital to the success of this project. All donations can be made to the Fennimore Area Foundation and are tax-deductible. All forms of gifts will be appreciated, including General Contributions, In-Kind Donations and Sponsorships. All donors will be recognized for their generous contributions, unless requested to remain anonymous. Donor names will appear in the Fennimore Times and will be on the “Wall of Honor” at the facility.
The Fennimore Area Foundation accepts credit card donations via PayPal. No need for a PayPal account, simply enter your donation amount and click continue. Please indicate the purpose of the donation in the Special Instructions section on the second page of the PayPal processing.
