The aquatics area at Bill Heddles Recreation Center remains closed due to an issue with the lighting. The closure affects all the pools, the hot tub and the sauna. Renee Ealey, City of Delta recreation manager, said, "We are waiting on electricians and some re-configurations of the light fixtures. We are in hopes it is completed this week." Patrons are advised to call 874-0923 for updates.
The entire facility was closed in late August for scheduled maintenance. With the exception of the pools, the recreation center re-opened Sept. 1.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
