SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - The future of the Sullivan City Pool has been up in the air for the last couple of weeks.

Now, a decision has been made by the City Park Board to pass the baton to a Sullivan City Pool Committee to decide what to do with the pool.

At last week’s pool meeting, the City Park Board voted unanimously to close the pool. Park Board President Ellen Tucker says the closing is based on a number of safety concerns and lack of funding to correct them.

Tucker says deciding what to do with the pool is a decision bigger than the five people on the Park Board. That's why the Pool Committee was formed by concerned residents.

Tucker says the community has shared a variety of ideas, now it's time to zero in on a plan.

She says, "At our meeting the desires were every place from fix this which means a new bath house among other things to a sports complex and everything in between. So they've got a lot of work to do to figure out what the public wants. They can't raise money until they have a goal. "

If the Pool Committee decides the pool will be moved to a different location, responsibility of the pool will shift off of the City Park Board.

The Pool Committee has changed the location of Thursday's Meeting. It will be held at 7 p.m. at the Sullivan City Park Shelter House. Members of the public are encouraged to come to this meeting to voice their opinions.
