Chatfield to look at options for aging swimming pool


Mon, Nov 17th, 2014
Posted in Chatfield Government

Chatfield’s city council approved an agreement with Burbach Aquatics, Inc. to have them evaluate the condition of the city’s swimming pool at their November 10 meeting. Councilor Paul Novotny was absent.

The city’s swimming pool is half a century old. Some of the more obvious problems include leaks in the mushroom pool and the sloughing off of the skim coat. The Park and Recreation Committee has been in contact with representatives from Burbach Aquatics for a few months. The Platteville based company, an architectural and engineering firm, offered a proposal to do a technical evaluation of the pool, making recommendations for repair and/or replacement, cost, and schedule of possible construction work.

The cost for this first step of the feasibility study, the professional evaluation of the current facility, is $2,150 plus reimbursement for expenses. Funds will come out of the Swimming Pool Fund.

2014 Street and Utility Improvements and Assessments

Dillon Dombrovski updated the council on the progress of the 2014 improvements. West Chatfield and Twiford St. were scheduled to be paved with the base course the next day if the weather allowed. Work on Bench St. is completed until spring when all of these streets should get the final lift or wear course. A fourth payment of $469,029.20 was approved to Zenke, Inc. for work completed to date.

A resolution was adopted declaring the cost to be assessed for the 2014 improvement project. The total cost for the improvements is $2,076,048. The city will pay $1,884,753. A total of $191,295 is to be assessed against benefiting property owners. Payments are to be made in ten equal installments over a ten year period with a 2.93 percent annual interest rate.

A second resolution was adopted calling for a public hearing on the proposed assessments for the 2014 projects to be held on December 8 at 7 p.m. in the Chatfield City Hall.
