The Helena Health Foundation in conjunction with the City of Helena West Helena has agreed to fund the operational cost for the Helena Municipal Pool for 2013.
In an effort to support healthy activity and more productive lifestyles, the foundation has agreed to pay for expenses incurred for normal operation. The Parks and Tourism Commission increased their efforts this year by allocating funding to install a wheelchair accessible ramp.
Helena-West Helena Mayor Arnell Willis, City Clerk Sandi Ramsey and many Helena Health Foundation advocates were all instrumental in accomplishing this program.
Like last year, the facility will have no admission fee for the general public. Pool Supervisor Earnest Womack reports that the county sanitarian has already paid the site a visit and that the pool is clear to open.
The Pool was slated to open on June 18.
