Toledo City Councilors Wednesday evening started to tackle the sticky issue of how to support the town’s swimming pool. It’s a complicated situation in that rates vary from inside Toledo City Limits to outside City Limits. A discussion between the City Council and the Pool Manager made it plain that there is enough money and water to keep the pool going. But it was made clear that a more refined division of money to keep the pool afloat will have to be agreed to at a future city council meeting. But it sounded like both sides were willing to compromise for the good of the town and the swimming pool district as well. Rates will be formulated and finalized in upcoming meetings…certainly in time for summer.
The Toledo City Council moved on to discussing an exciting new project to help Toledo establish a more secure water supply for the town. The plan is to supplement Toledo’s current water supply with a new $200,000 pipeline running from the Mill Creek raw water pump station into Toledo proper. The 12-inch line will not be buried which means cost savings. Another advantage is that any line damage or breakage due to earthquakes or anything else can be repaired cheaply and quickly. The Toledo Public Works Department got the green light to proceed with the project which will entail pipe installation starting in late July and be fully installed in a month – plus or minus a little.
