Noteworthy Information from the July 9, 2020 Meeting
City of Washington: A Community on the Move!
This summer, the splashes and laughter of kids young and old at the Agnes Nolting Aquatic Complex have been replaced by the creaking of bulldozers and scraping of excavators. The City of Washington will soon have a new swimming pool. Mayor Sandy Lucy explained that this capital improvement project is on track to be completed for reopening the summer of 2021. The complex will include a new zero entry pool, new entrance building (the old entrance building will remain and house the pool pumps and apparatus), a snack bar with seating, a splash pad and an area for sunbathers. The pool will not only be utilized by recreational swimmers but also by school swim teams for competitions. The community cannot wait to put its toes in the water!
City Administrator, Darren Lamb, spoke about the Washington Rotary Riverfront Trail. The trail has been partially closed since 2018 while the new Washington bridge was being constructed. With the recent dry weather and low river levels, Alberici has stabilizing eroding banks along the trail. Bids for asphalt are currently out and the city hopes to be pouring by August and to have our Rotary Riverfront Trail open by September 2020!
The City of Washington is also in the exploratory phase of citywide fiber for its residents.
We thank Mayor Sandy Lucy and City Administrator Darren Lamb for their time and appreciate their civil service to the community of Washington.
