The city is now far closer to opening the pool than keeping it closed.
After public urging in last Monday's session, and an informal meeting Wednesday, council met in a special review session this Monday and reassessed new and old numbers on the city pool.
Finance Chair Jeremy Siberell led most of the hour-long discussion, much of it focused on costs...and donations, including a major one Wednesday - $10,000 from Kevin Ross' Triple Crown Family Fun Center.
Many administrative, staffing, and maintenance issues were brought up. The target date for opening - if it happens - is in 14 to 21 days. It will take four days alone to fill the pool.
Council might make a vote on the pool in a special Wednesday evening session.
Donations will be held until the opening is certain, and volunteers for a "Pool Strategic Planning Team" will soon make better plans for the future.
Council also discussed and gave second reading to a resolution to provide 60 angled street parking spaces after the Carlisle is renovated.
