Once again, Archbold Parks & Recreation officials think they have the leak at the Archbold swimming pool fixed.
They have been fighting a leak at the pool for a few years.
Troy Double, parks superintendent, told the Archbold Park Board at its Wednesday, Jan. 27 meeting that it was discovered that bottoms of the drains in the deep end of the pool were made of wood.
What happens when wood and water are mixed? The wood deteriorates, he said.
Fiberglass drains have been fabricated. Jennifer Kidder, parks & recreation director, said the repairs have started, but won’t be completed until warmer weather.
In other pool news, Kidder said Darcie Dominique, Wauseon, has been named manager for the summer season. She previously served as assistant manager.
It will be her third season at the pool.
Jesse Fidler, Archbold, was named assistant manager. She has worked at the pool for three years.
Kidder said she is finalizing the rest of the pool staff.
The next meeting of the Archbold Park Board is Wednesday, March 9, 7 pm, in Archbold Village Council Chambers.
