Some repairs and maintenance will be taking place at the Madison Community Center pool. Madison City Commissioners on Monday approved the use of the Center’s Maintenance and Repair Reserve funds for several projects, including the installation of Life Floor, sandblasting and painting the pool and slide, and gutter replacement.
Community Center Aquatics Director Laurie Bunker told commissioners why some of the work is needed at the pool.
Bunker said that Life Floor, which is manufactured locally, is giving them a discount on materials.
Bunker said that the installation of the Life Floor is going to require draining the pool, so they then considered looking into doing all that needed to be done at one time. That includes sandblasting and painting the pool, and also the slide.
Bunker said that a new zero depth gutter system is also needed, and she said that the only cost would be for the materials, because they plan to utilize their own resources and those from Dakota State University for the installation.
Commissioners approved the use of up to 190-thousand dollars of the Community Center’s Maintenance and Repair Reserve for the project, which will also be paid for in part by funds from DSU.
