Pierre Pool Closed for Season
The Pierre outdoor pool will not open today and will stay closed for the remainder of the season.
The early closure is the result of a mechanical concern with a pool motor. The pool was originally scheduled to close for the season on August 17. The repair will be made, and the pool is expected to be fully operational for the 2019 pool season.
A City-appointed Outdoor Pool Committee continues to meet to develop a replacement plan for the outdoor pool. The group hopes to have a replacement plan to the Pierre City Commission by the end of 2018. The group’s next meeting is Thursday, Aug. 16. They will meet at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
