ROSSVILLE, Kan. (KSNT) – Construction on the Rossville Community Pool is expected to begin either Monday or Tuesday.
Shawnee County Parks and Recreation said lifeguards found a leak in the pool last year that needs to be fixed before it can re-open.
So far, the county has spent $23,000 on the project but could spend up to $55,000 to finish.
Commissioner Bill Riphahn felt it was important to get the pool up and running for people who live in Rossville.
“In Topeka if you have a pool closed, there’s lots of other options, there’s other pools to go to. This is their option and there’s not a lot of recreational facilities there,” Riphahn said.
Parks and Rec said work on the pool could be done in three weeks or less.
