Doesn't look like city's pool will be open this summer either

NORWICH – The Kurt Beyer Pool faces another summer without repair after the Joint Committees discussed the fate of the pool Tuesday night, citing that no money is available to make necessary repairs and that it will have to be closed another year.

When city officials were forced to close the pool, it was originally thought work would be completed and the pool reopen by June this year; however, the denial of the city’s application for grant money from the State Environmental Protection Fund in December and the lack of funding available in this year’s city budget will likely keep the pool from opening in 2012.

The pool is in need of a new filtration system, electrical system and gunite to seal the inside and around the pool – projects accumulating a total cost of $251,845. After closing last summer, swimmers had the option of using the pool at the Norwich High School, but usage dropped off severely.
