WALBRIDGE - The village pool is poised to open next week, weather-permitting.
After Wednesday's council meeting, Mayor Ed Kolanko said work is continuing on installing a new liner in the pool.
"Next week is my best answer," he said about when the pool could open.
Aqua Terrace usually opens around Memorial Day, but the RenoSystem crew ran behind on another project in Kentucky. They had been expected in Walbridge May 13-18. RenoSystem started the installation the first week of June.
"It looks like they are very close (to finishing)," Kolanko said, adding that any rain could set the company back.
Last summer, council voted to buy a $17,134 pool liner from Aquatic Renovation Systems Inc. Council has been working on repairs and improvements to the 60-year-old pool for about a year.
Kolanko said the administration will use the One Call Now village-wide telephone system and the media to let the public know when the pool is open.
The administration has talked about extending the pool season through Labor Day, he said.
In other business, council heard from Don Feller and Rachel Latta of Feller, Finch and Assoc., Maumee. The company finds grants and puts together specifications for building projects for the village.
Feller urged council to put together an inventory of the village's infrastructure needs, prioritizing them. He said it helps the company target grants for Walbridge.
"It's like taking care of a house … a community's no different," Feller said.
Also at the meeting, council:
•         Approved, as an emergency, Cash Services LLC to do the 2013 curb replacement project for $47,282. Kolanko said three bids were received and this was the lowest one. The proposed work consists of removing and replacing approximately 3,153 feet of concrete curbs along Parkview Drive.
•         Heard resident Larry Boday ask if this year's mosquito spraying could be done before 10 p.m. since it's very loud. He also asked if any grants were available to pave alleys. Latta said that was doubtful due to the small amount of traffic, but a 0-percent interest loan would probably be available if the village wanted to do the work.
•         Canceled the July 3 meeting.
