PAGE 6 THE PRESS APRIL 18, 2012 POOL TASKFORCE FROM PAGE 1-- could potentially gather everything from spare change to big bucks. It was decided to go for an event with big returns because the park board wants to be able to make a decision by mid-June about whether there is enough financial support to be able to operate the big pool for the full year. Kent Schmitz, who had been on the park board for several years, said that the pool was built in the 60's with a potential lifespan of 40 years, but being built on a hill has cut that number significantly. He added that putting a liner in the pool in the 90's helped the pool but did not save it. In recent years a leakhas contributed to extra costs of a Facility that does not make money to begin with. Schmitz explained that no pool ever makes money, but the increased cost is what led to the debate of whether the big pool was worth keeping open. The board is looking to cut losses and look to the future. Park board member Kyle Halvorson, who is a part of the pool fundraising committee, said that beyond simply maintaining, part of the committee's long-term goal should to be saving for a new facility. He compared the town's situation with the swimming pool in Edgeley, N.D. The COlranunity of just over 500 people managed to create a million-dol- lar facility after 11 years of planning and fundraising. Seim is very optimistic about what the group can accomplish both now and in years to come. "This is the doer committee," she said "And we're going to do it." Schmitz said that because of the large amount of community support that attended the park board's most recent meeting, he had wanted the board to commit to keeping the pool open for this year at least. No deci- sion has been made by the board either to close or remain open for the year. The committee plans to meet weekly to discuss ways to benefit the pool in order to be able to have something to show for their efforts by June 15. Meetings'will be held each Sunday at 8 p.m. in the community room at the Park River city office.
