City council listens to pool ideas
Representatives from two pool design companies dove into ideas and recommendations for the future of the Eudora pool at the Nov. 13 city council meeting.
The council decided to mull over what it heard Monday and postpone further discussion or decisions until the next council meeting.
The suggestions from Larkin, the company that worked on the Lawrence Aquatic Center, included repairs and maintenance of the existing pool until the city decided to build a new structure.
Problem areas include leaks, peeling plaster and a pump submerged in several inches of water.
CAS Construction, which worked with the city on the wastewater treatment plant, presented ideas on popular pool designs such as those adopted by Russell when CAS designed the city's new pool.

The council approved the Floodplain Management Ordinance, which dictates building codes for structures located in flooding areas according to a map from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The council also approved a new 25 year lease agreement between the city and the Eudora school district for the tennis court and pool area. The agreement allows for the possibility the facilities might move to a different site in the future.
