Mayor, council to discuss liner company’s payment, no money spent yet

After a closure lasting longer than a month, the leisure pool at the Powell Aquatic Center reopened to swimmers Monday morning.

“So far, the liner appears to be performing as it should,” said Gary Butts, city public services manger, in an email Tuesday. “Obviously, we will continue to monitor it, but water has been in the pool for almost a week now and seems to be doing good.”

Council split 4-3 on decision

The Powell Golf Club will continue to manage the municipal golf course under a three-year extension approved in a 4-3 split vote by the Powell City Council last week.

Amid conversations about lowering rates, the course’s ongoing debt, a better marketing plan and the city’s level of funding, the council voted 5-2 last month to extend the agreement for only three months rather than a full year. Some councilmen alluded to new management for the city-owned course.

Golf is on the agenda again Monday night for the Powell City Council.

Last month, councilmen voted 5-2 to extend the Powell Golf Club’s operating agreement for three months rather than a full year. That uncertainty has made it difficult for the golf club to sell memberships for next year or to raise more matching funds — two things the council does want the golf club to do.

Differ on social issues, shared focus on economic development

All four candidates running to represent Powell in the Legislature are registered Republicans, but their political views cross the GOP gamut.

A week from today, voters will make important decisions to determine who our future leaders will be.

The primary election allows Republicans and Democrats to choose their candidates for the general election in November.

For swimmers, it’s been a disappointedly dry summer at the Powell Aquatic Center’s leisure pool.

For three weeks, the leisure pool has been closed while repairs continue on a bubbling liner.
