Outdoor pool open
Everybody, into the pool.
The outdoor pool at Armstrong’s Memorial Park opens this weekend.
“The first swim is today,” said Coun. Kelly Rowe.
The pool is open from noon to 5 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Thanks to a grant provided by the city, the first 100 people Saturday get in free.
CN Rail has told the city they are planning for some necessary rail crossing upgrades.
“Currently, they have only one confirmed, the Fraser Road crossing, with no date provided,” wrote city public works manager Tim Perepolkin.
When a date is announced, the work will require the closure of Fraser Road for the duration of the upgrade.
Officials have noticed, at the start of the spring run-off, a slight increase in turbidity in Armstrong’s Fortune Creek source.
However, there is no need to be alarmed.
“We are currently well within our operating permit limitations, and we are prepared to switch to groundwater supply with the implementation of stage 2 water restrictions if and when necessary,” said Perepolkin.
Project to start
Armstrong’s major capital project for 2014 begins Tuesday.
The start of the complete overhaul of Dunn Road was supposed to have been last week, but the contractor was behind schedule on another project.
