Council decides on location for new pool

Funding for project remains an issue


Caitlin Sievers

Members of the Sidney swim team encouraged Mayor Wendall Gaston as well as the rest of the city council to move forward with plans for the new swimming pool with their poster at Tuesday's city council meeting.

Sidney's new swimming pool will be located south of Lodgepole Valley Youth Camp, near the t-ball fields.

The city council made the official location decision at Tuesday's meeting. Due to necessary road paving and the installation of a sidewalk or trail in the area, this location will cost the city an estimated $400,000 to $500,000 more than the other proposed sites. The prospective plans for the new pool include a competition pool and zero depth entry pool with one or two slides.

Many members of the Sidney swim team attended the meeting to urge the council to move the project along.
