The New Hampton Pool has pushed off making a final decision on its summer fate for weeks now – Mayor Bobby Schwickerath says this is because of how tough of a decision it is they are facing. This answer will finally be answered at Wednesday’s board meeting.
Schwickerath says he doesn’t know what the board will decide – they want to open for the kids, but stay closed for universal health.
Schwickerath says New Hampton is well aware that if the pool decides to open that surrounding communities with closed pools like Charles City, Mason City, and Osage might hightail over to their pool.
Many will be relieved to hear either way on the pool’s decision on Wednesday. Schwickerath says the pool could even decide to exclusively open for 30 days.
