“As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel it is in the best interest of our community and staff to keep pools closed for the 2020 season,” said Lisa Kiser, director of parks and recreation. “This was a difficult decision to make; however, we feel this is the best decision in the interest of public health and safety.”
