>>Work on Schlegel Park Pool to Proceed, Open Late Next Spring
(Reading, PA) -- City councilors have approved funding to resume work on Reading's Schlegel Park pool. Monday night, the council adopted an ordinance to amend the 2021 capital improvement fund budget to use half a million dollars to cover the cost of the project. The pool has been closed for the past two seasons, but city officials said the renovation of the pool will be completed in time for it to open by Memorial Day. A one-point-four-million-dollar contract was awarded for the project in 2020, but work was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
