Pools Opening Date, Task Force Update

Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel's Aquatics Task Force finished their tour of local public pools. Now, it's up to them to decide what improvements may need to be made.

Last week, the task force visited five pools and finished their tour with four more visits last night. They took a hard look at Helfrich and wrapped up the tour at Howell.

Now the committee will take what they've learned and discuss more options. Task Force member Jim Morgan says, "I learned, we have a big task ahead of us, and it's gonna take time to do it. We're really gonna have to think big, and think outside the box, to get the job done."

The task force will spend the next 12 to 18 months putting their recommendations together.

Meanwhile, all of Evansville pools except Tepe Park Pool, will be open for the summer by Tuesday, June 2nd.
