USE OF POOL LEVY FUNDS WITH POOL BEING CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER!
Because of the COVID 19 Pandemic this year and ultimately closing the Delta pool for the 2020 summer, the question as to what happens with the levy funds generated from residents’ taxes is expected. Under Ohio Revised Code section 5705.10(c), the funds generated by the 1.25 mill levy, which are approximately $55,000 MUST remain in accounts specifically for the pool.
The village administration is looking at several areas of the pool operation where needed maintenance could be completed efficiently and cost effectively while the pool is closed. Specifically, the restroom shower areas of the bath house need attention. Another required project is the construction of an enclosure to protect the filtration system currently exposed to the elements.
Looking forward, one possible use for a portion of this year’s funds could serve as match funding for attracting grant dollars to construct a child friendly splash pad, which would replace the current infant pool.
