I think we should start thinking now what we should do to re open and repair the pool. City council finally made a righ decsion not to use SIU pool they should be talking now how we can fix it and open it for the kids in town.

I was at the first meeting of the Parks and Rec Board today and the first thing we talked about was the fact that it would take at least $30,000 to fix the pool. Which would you rather do- fix the pool or pay the University to use theirs? Let the city council know your opinion.

Nancy, Congratulations to your appointment to the board I feel really bad for you because of some of the people you will be serving with does not have a clue, but never the less I want to give you an idea here I reguested the report that showed the pool would cost 30,000 dollars for repair, I was told there is no such report , but it was an estimate from the public works director. It is known through out town that the director of public works is not a fan of the pool and would do whatever it took to keep it closed, so his estimate may be somewhat biasis. I requested through then Mark Jackson that city council put out an engineering study of the pool, this would cost the city nothihg whatever engineering company got the bid would be responsible for =getting the funding to fix the pool, Jackson said great idea and did nothing with it. My advice to council would be to get a hold of Region 6 < we all know how much Don Stamm loves them> but use them to get an engineer and or funding to assist with revamps at the pool city council would have to do this. It is to much of an assest for our town and for our kids to let the pool set the way it is !!

Robert- The wheels of government move slowly. Somebody always wants to do a study. Don't even get me going on what someone said they would do and never got around to.

Nancy, I spoke with my council person tonihgt and he informed me that city council already voted to NOT use the college pool or pay that fee that college requested, Dave you are right they should pay their BnO tax it is very unfair.

Nancy, there needs to be an engineering study to find out exactly what the pool needs to operate and what repairs need to be made, by a qualifed engineer not the public works director. After a study is done by a qualified engineer they can find funding with the help of ergion 6 to do the necessary work to repair the pool, but all this requires action of city council they have to take the steps necessary to obtain the engineers study and so on.

Robert- I don't know who you spoke to last night, but they were correct. I happen to be married to my councilman, Doug Fischer so I am informed about the issue, besides being on the P&R Board. Stay tuned.

Nancy, First let me say I think Doug is doing a fine job im affraid the more he explores the more corrupt he will find Salem city govt and its departments really are. I do appreciate both of you all serving! An the willingness to try something new!! Thank you again.

Human nature is human nature, everyone has to live with themselves and what they do. I can only speak for myself-and I have NO hidden motives, nor am I stupid enough to believe that I can change Salem alone. I DO NOT speak for Fischer. I want the place I live to be safe and maybe someday, prosperous. And for people who think less of me because I am a woman, or because I have a disability they would be wrong.

I think they either need to crap or get off the pot on the pool. Either fix it and move on or drain it and take down the fence so the grass can be mowed. It was a disgrace last year the shape it was left in. The water in it can't be good for anything except a breeding ground for insects.

My question is:why have they not drained the pool at least? Here it is June and the water is green!! I'm not sure but it looks like it would be health hazard. They could have one of those well trucks go and drain the water out!
