Jim Beechy Councilman

MILLERSBURG OH. -- It's official. The James Crissey Memorial Swimming Pool will be closed for the 2011 season because of severe damage in the pool's floor caused by high water. The pool bed was poured in 1929, which makes village officials feel they got their money's worth without having to perform major structural repairs for more than 80 years. Now that the concrete is exposed, it is obvious several flaws existed from the first pour.
"I had three people come up to me today and say 'I hope you're not closing the pool' and that has an impact," said Councilman Jim Beechy. "Unfortunately it won't be available this year." Click for article by Jeff Canning, Staff Writer June 3, 2011
