Bloomville pool to close Sunday

BLOOMVILLE – Bloomville Street Superintendent Rick Dentinger said he has not received a reply from the company that installed the liner for the village swimming pool. After completing the liner project, Dentinger found that water was seeping behind the liner and the pool had to be drained again. He worked many hours making repairs and the lost chemicals cost $1,200. He then requested a refund for the repairs and his time from the company.

After scrutinizing the contract, clerk/treasurer Janis Weasner said she could find no finance charges to the village for late payment and council decided to hold payment until the company communicates with them.

Dentinger said Sunday is closing day for the pool. Evening hours are 5-7 p.m. and regular hours on the weekend. When the pool is drained, Dentinger again is to check for leaks.

He also reported Clouse Electric had taken a look at the water plant and the pool and electrical work on lighting will be done at a later date.

Mayor Steve George said he had completed all the income surveys needed for the village to make application for Community?Development Block Grant funding.

He also suggested starting a capital improvement account for future needs. Councilwoman Carol Adams suggested that be included in next year’s budget appropriations.

Adams informed members she has been working on a project to develop a 14- by 18-foot section of the former Bloomville school property as a memorial. The plans call for a moon-shaped design with pavers, a plaque and shrubs. Future additions might include paths and benches.
