Many people have wondered if the city of Toledo's pools will open this summer. With six slated to open, north Toledo would have been left out.
It was going to take about $50,000 to open the Jamie Farr park pool and the one at Wilson Park. That simply was not in the city's budget. That's when members of the community got involved. Jamie Farr and Wilson's pool will now open.
In early summer, the pool was not planned to open because of costly repairs. But local unions, companies and members of the community stepped up to the plate.
"We said let's get it done. This is what we do," said Louis Szabo, UA Local 50.
Cameras were sent to explore the problem underground. Stress fractures in pipes below the water sent sand in, causing the pool to lose over 2 feet of water a day last year. Donations covered extensive repairs to keep the pool running for years to come.
"We always do projects for the community and this one seemed like a great one, with summer coming on, we could lead expertise too so we were excited to take it on," said Szabo.
"It shows all the people here believe in the community, believe in the children, and they've expressed it so I am more than excited. I'm ecstatic," said Paula Hicks-Hudson.
Council president Hudson says this is something that's very important to a lot of people in the city. She said she's glad they were able to work together to make it happen.
"Much of what we heard before was that there was nothing for kids to do, and so this is going to provide that opportunity for them to have a place to go, and also what I'm hoping will come out of it is swim lessons and the ability for kids to learn how to swim," said Hudson.
The final piece to getting the pools open was to find funding to pay lifeguards. Their pay was not calculated in when city council originally approved the opening of the city's pools.
City council voted Tuesday to use money from police auctions and put that toward the chemicals and lifeguard costs. The two north Toledo pools will open along with the other city pools Saturday June 1.
