The aquatics area at Bill Heddles Recreation Center continues to be closed as staff awaits the arrival of new lighting equipment and wiring.
"We are moving forward on this repair as fast as supplies will allow us to," said recreation director Wilma Erven. Contractors are ready to start installation as soon as the equipment arrives, hopefully by Wednesday. "The contractor will be working all night to get us up as soon as we can."
She stressed, "We are working as fast and hard as we can to get the facility open soon!"
No time frame has been provided for the re-opening of the pool. Please call the recreation center at 874-0923 for updates.
