Bloomville pool ready for swim season

BLOOMVILLE – Bloomville Council members heard the swimming pool is filled and ready for the summer with opening day June 2.

Street Superintendent Rick Dentinger said stains remain in the swimming pool after last year’s leak, even though he has been applying bleach. A representative from Renosys, the firm that made last year’s repairs, also used bleach to remove the stains and said the warranty does not cover stains. Continued calls to the company are being ignored and Dentinger may ask Solicitor Tim Hoover to follow up.

Dentinger said areas disturbed when repairing water breaks are to have hot patch applied, because it will be available with warmer weather.

Mayor Robert George said FSI, the village’s trash hauler, has been delivering packaged bags of eight when the bag states 10 and residents are being charged for 10. Attempts to contact the company have resulted in no response.

George said the Ohio Revised Code states lawns must not be taller than six inches. Notices are to be sent to residents reminding them to get lawns mowed before grass is tall.
