Big Topic At City Council Meeting Was YMCA Pool

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The Terre Haute City Council held its regular meeting Thursday night and the Council chambers was packed with citizens who wanted to talk about efforts to re-open and fix the YMCA pool.

The Y had said that they have closed the pool due to the cost of operations.

Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett said that he is working on a way to re-open the pool.

Several members of the public addressed the Terre Haute City Council to express their support for the idea.

Mayor Duke Bennett says there is a clear need for the pool. He explains re-opening the pool will require help through private donations and a partnership between the Y and the city.

A final decision on a possible deal has not yet been made.

Representatives of the YMCA were not at the meeting.
