COVINGTON, Ind. —
Crain recommended having Pettit Pools of Crawfordsville, Ind., come and close the pool for the season and Myers could observe and learn how to close the pool.
Discussed painting the pool this year after it has been drained. Pool manager Kelli Pinkerton said that the pool’s management group is willing to paint the pool, but they would like to be paid something for doing it. Pinkerton explained that they volunteered to paint the black lines in the pool earlier in the spring and they did it in two days time, but it was a lot of work.
Crain asked Pinkerton to bring some labor cost estimates to the next regular city council meeting on Sept. 3. Crain also recommended that Pinkerton order the pool paint so that they have it ready.
Learned from Pinkerton the pool had a good year despite opening five days late and being closed for 12 days due to weather. The night swims with a movie were very successful; Pinkerton said they had more than 200 people at the first movie night.
Decided to let the city’s office employees decide on a city website. Clerk/Treasurer Debby Gurley said that the biggest request from customers is to pay city bills online. Gurley said that website would be primarily used to post public notices and offer a place for city customers to pay bill utility bills online. Gurley said that they have narrowed down the website designer to Beamsco of Danville and Rahmtech of Veedersburg. Beamsco has a start up cost of $1,035 and a $240 annual maintenance fee. Rahmtech has a start up cost of $1,040 and a $410 annual maintenance fee.
