The Charles City municipal pool at Lions Club Field is slated to close for the season later this week.
The last day the pool is scheduled to be open is Sunday, August 15th, assuming there’s adequate staff. A Facebook post last Friday (Aug. 6) indicated the pool will be closed this Thursday (08.12) and Friday (08.13) due to a staff shortage, something Parks and Recreation Director Tyler Mitchell says they were able to avoid most of the summer, and was one factor leading to a busy season.
Mitchell says they were also able to navigate through a few maintenance issues, which could play a role in the pool’s future.
Mitchell adds that after all is said and done, people were just glad to have the pool open this year after being closed all last summer due to COVID-19.
