Aquatic Center is Removed from Bond Issue but Planning Continues

Plans for a new aquatic center for Mt. Lebanon remain on track, but in an effort to hold the line on taxes, elected officials have removed the $5.3 million for pool construction from the bond issue included the 2007 capital improvement budget. This change not only reduces the bond issue significantly, but it will give the commission time to evaluate the Counsilman-Hunsacker feasibility study, including the projected costs of the various options, before deciding on the amount of the bond issue needed to fund the project. The aquatic center will probably get under way in 2008, and the cost figures provided by Counsilman-Hunsaker in the preliminary report (see link at right) are in 2008 dollars. Counsilman-Hunsacker will provide its final report at a public meeting at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 16, at Mt. Lebanon Recreation Center. All posts on this blog have been updated to reflect the fact that the $5.3 million for the aquatic center is no longer included in the 2007 budget.
