The Friends of the Bob Korn Pool, in conjunction with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department and Commission is conducting a fund raiser to help pay the costs with restoring the pool’s saline filtration system. If you use the pool, you know that a few months ago, during upgrades to the filter, a water line broke causing extensive damage in the equipment room. The saline system was broken. While insurance paid for much of the repairs, there is still over $5k in deductibles that needed to be made up. The saline system has been extremely popular, so a decision to use funds from other recreational sources was made to underwrite restoration of the saline system. Parts are being made and should be installed in the next few weeks. To help off-set expenses containers have been positioned at the pool, City Hall and other locations to receive your donations. From spare change to large bills, no contribution is too small. Your Bob Korn Pool is a plus to our community; help restore it. We especially encourage those who use the pool free of charge during tot time swims to consider a contribution. Thanks for your help.
The City's Parks and Rec Department would like to gently remind community members that the swim platform and beach at Skaters Cabin is not open to the public when the cabin is being rented.
Please understand that community members and visitors rent the cabin for special parties and private family time. Although everyone is in good spirits when they visit the beach front, it can be disappointing to share the space for those who have been planning a special occasion and have rented the cabin.
Believe it or not, the month of July is booked with just 6 days remaining available. The month of August is only open for 2 days!! It’s a popular place! Please be thoughtful & give us a call @ 424-7282 to see if its available before you choose to use the beach front for the day. Thanks a lot!
The City Council voted at their June 17th, 2015 meeting not to enter into contract with the only bidder on the paving project for the 2015 construction season. Council directed staff to readvertise the Invitation to Bid in the Fall/Winter of 2015 for the 2016 construction season. In lieu of paving, the Public Works Crew will do their best to maintain the integrity of the Nicholoff and Harbor Loop Roads throughout this busy summer season.
The Cordova Public Library is open on Sundays during the summer season from 1:00 pm until 5:00 pm. A great quiet time to pick up the books and magazines you may need for the week ahead.
