ARLINGTON — Arlington’s community swimming pool will open May 25, Village Council announced Monday.
The pool will close for the season on Aug. 28.
Free admission to the pool will be offered May 25, June 23 and Aug. 12.
Village officials will explore offering reduced pool pass rates in light of a successful levy campaign last fall to fund village park and pool improvements.
Lifeguards, manager and assistant managers will be sought for the upcoming pool season, Councilman Tom Blunk said.
In other park matters, two donations were announced Monday for a new scoreboard at Price Field at the park, estimated at $5,000.
Jessica Montague and Good Samaritan Society of Arlington have pledged $350, while village resident Dorothy Bruns will give $500.
Donations will be sought from other businesses, according to Councilman Terry Lynn Huffman.
“I hope to have some good news at the next (council) meeting,” Huffman said. “We’ve had some positive feedback.”
Council mentioned placing the names of donors on the scoreboard.
Separately, Hull’s Trace Wine Cellar is “three weeks out” from completion, the co-owners told Arlington Council. The owners want to install angle parking at the business located at 105 E. Liberty St. Council will consider that plan.
Separately, council heard a quote of $24,235 to grind down the edges of certain sections of pavement in the village.
That issue will be sent to council’s Streets, Sidewalks and Zoning Committee.
In other business, council:
- Held a closed executive session to discuss personnel matters.
- Heard that manhole covers have been inspected.
