A final vote on building a $2.8 million swimming facility in the county park likely won’t happen until September, if it happens at all.
Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway said last week that the fiscal court will open architectural bids for the project during its meeting Aug. 6, but doesn’t expect a vote that day to hire one.
Conway said the fiscal court’s parks and recreation committee will review those bids before being presented to the fiscal court for a vote.
If an architectural bid is approved, the next step would be to advertise for bids to actually build the facility, with a vote on construction likely to take place in September.
During an interview last week, Conway said the fiscal court will be able to service debt on $1.8 million at its current tax rate, but not $2.8 million. He said to build the facility, he is working to raise $1 million in private donations.
