Have some things to say about the future of the Fayette Community Pool? Your chance is coming soon.
The Fayette Park Board has set a community meeting for 7 p.m. July 9 to present information about the state of the pool and concerns about its future.
A fact sheet will be prepared to distribute to people attending the meeting.
Meetings scheduled in the past—before the decision to close the pool—had very sparse attendance. Park board members are hoping for more interest now that the pool’s future is at stake due to maintenance needs.
The meeting is scheduled at the park shelter house.
Park board members learned at the June 16 meeting that a profit of about $500 should be made from the sale of photographs of summer ball teams.
The pizza fund raiser also went well. More than 400 orders were taken for pizza from Don’s Pizza Stop. Future fund raisers will involve other businesses in town.
Discussion continued about a volleyball tournament. A decision was made against buying new sand for the court. Instead the ground will be used.
Plans continue for a blues festival tentatively scheduled Aug. 15 and 16. Cost estimates were presented and information about additional equipment is being collected. Menu items for concession sales were also discussed.
