At Monday’s City Council meeting, Council will discuss the cost to make repairs at the struggling South Valley Middle School swimming pool, after receiving a detailed report from City staff that analyzes just how much the repairs would cost.
Staff reports that “immediate and required” repairs would cost $447,600, and that “optional” repairs to increase energy efficiency would tack on another $33,000. Staff also reports that the yearly cost to maintain the pool is $141,250, which includes utilities, chemicals and supplies and staffing.
The total fiscal impact to the City to fix the pool and maintain it for one year would be $621,850.
Council will decide Monday night if that price tag is worth saving the pool at SVMS.
In July, on a narrow 4-3 vote, Council decided to keep the idea of saving the pool afloat after months of heated debate. Council ordered staff to prepare a detailed cost analysis of pool repairs that night to see if they could accomodate the pool into next year’s budget.
Also on Monday’s agenda:
Council will vote to adopt an ordinance that awards a developer, Tom Quaglia, with a zoning exemption to build 60 duet homes on the Westside of Monterey near Tenth Street and Luchessa Avenue.
