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.
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
