Future of East Ridge pool still undecided

By WRCB Staff

EAST RIDGE (WRCB) -- East Ridge City officials had hope to save a community pool from sinking.

The East Ridge Youth Foundation has operated the pool for the last 42 years and over the years has accumulated $11,000 in debt.

The Foundation was trying to work out a deal with the City Council. The City would pay for water, power, upkeep, handle the repairs and loan the foundation the money to pay off the debt.

At Thursday's City Council meeting a motion was made that would allow the foundation to continue running the pool and the City to fund repairs. The motion did not get a second and was not passed.

The future of the pool is now left up to the foundation. A couple options are to either let the City buy the pool or let it go to auction.
