COVINGTON, Ind. —
- Learned from fire chief Joe Whitaker the city should be reimbursed by FEMA for 25 percent of $68,000 in storm damages that the city incurred this spring. Damages included part of Circle Trail and sections of the Jefferson Street storm sewer.
- Learned from Mayor Brad Crain that the caulking sealant was removed from the city pool and replaced. Crain said all the city departments helped with the pool’s clean up and repair. The pool will be painted this week. Pettit Pools of Crawfordsville, Ind., will assist in opening the pool on Friday.
Crain feels confident in the city’s repairs to the pool and believes the leak issue has been solved as long as the leak is not in the pool’s plumbing underneath the pool. Crain added that the city’s repair cost $300 in materials and “the guys worked hard on it for three to four days.” The pool should be on schedule to open to public this weekend.
