Jacksonville pool project moves forward at city council meeting

Plans to improve the Nichols Park pool cleared an important hurdle at last night’s city council meeting. After hearing proposals from three firms, Water’s Edge Aquatics was chosen by the selection committee. The decision was approve by the council.

Water’s Edge Aquatics will now perform a study and make a recommendation to the council about what direction the improvement project should go in. Those recommendations will then be reviewed by the city council. Work will begin once funding is approved for the project. However, Alderman Warmowski told me that although selecting a firm was an important step, the whole process may still take several more years.

The city also voted to amend the Liquor Ordinance and remove two liquor license. Pizza Hut is giving up their license, and Casey’s is also losing one.

Alderman Patterson also discussed her upcoming ordinance proposal limiting where and when dumpsters can be parked. She noted that there are no rules about placing dumpsters in parking areas for extended periods of time if the dumpster is being used for an approved purpose.

You can watch the full meeting below.
