Lancaster Delays Opening New Pool Until June 15

LANCASTER, WI (Ben Caxton) — The City of Lancaster’s new $2.8-million municipal swimming pool may not open this year after the Lancaster Common Council on Wednesday night decided to delay the decision to open the pool until its’ regular common council meeting on June 15th. The council discussed during a special meeting as they debated whether or not to open the municipal pool and to offer summer recreation programs this year. Through proclamation declaring a State of Emergency in the city due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Lancaster Mayor Dave Varnam has the authority to decide whether or not summer recreation programs should be conducted, and whether or not the new municipal swimming pool should open this year. Originally it was set to open June 10th, but after meeting with city staff this week including City Administrator David Carlson and Parks and Recreation staff, Varnam changed the opening date to June 15th.
