Ref. the pool meeting.
The January 23rd meeting to discuss our Community Pool held in the Owl's Nest" of the Hoosick Armory was very well attended. After a nearly two hour discussion the Town Board, by unanimous vote, authorized Laberge Engineering proceed with gathering the needed information and estimates for Phase one of this project, the pool itself. The old liner has been removed, a sonar scan for potential sub-structure issues completed. As soon as the Board has the information from Laberge we will have to decide the type of pool liner to install, Gunite, Vinyl or Fiberglass. At the same time we will decide the scope of work to be done in and around the pool itself.

Additional Project Phases will be much needed upgrades to the Mechanical Building and then the Bath House.
