Williamsport City Council allocates pool funds, approves school paving project

City Council recently authorized the public works department to use American Rescue Funds and Memorial Pool funds to pay for the pool liner at Memorial Pool.

A resolution was approved stating that the remaining $75,660 will be funded through ARPA, and the remaining balance of the project will be covered by pool funds of $52,291.

The pool membrane was $127,951 and went $11,769 over budget, said Scott Livermore, department general manager.

The overage was a change order to repair 50-plus unforeseen holes in the gutter system, he said.

The liner installation happened late in the year in August but still enabled the pool to open just before one of the more blistering heat waves of summer and will be a long-term fix for the pool.

In other actions, City Council recently signed an agreement between the city and Williamsport Area School District on a performed alley paving project.

It is for the paving of a city alley directly adjacent to the school’s Cochran Primary School parking lot, said Scott Livermore, director of the city department of public works.

The city will financially reimburse the school district for this work that was already performed in July by the school district’s contractor in the amount of $7,004 through state liquid fuels.

The district retained Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc. for services.
