Cleveland City Council Addresses Delays In Mosby Pool Project

Monday, July 14, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

The Cleveland City Council passed a motion Monday afternoon to request the contractor of the Mosby Pool project come to the next meeting, if the project is not completed by then, to explain the lengthy delays.

The project is now approximately four months behind schedule. Councilman Richard Banks said many people have been unhappy with this because their children have gone all summer without being able to use the pool. 

Councilman Banks said, "Those children have been without their pool all summer and I think the contractor should be held responsible.

"

He also stated that this kind of breach of contract would not be acceptable in private business. 

He said, "Based on my calculations, that pool should have been finished on March 17."

He also said, "I think he ought to at least reimburse the city for what it costs to bus the children to other pools if he's in breach of contract." 

If everything is completed by the next meeting, the council will hold a ribbon-cutting.

It was also announced during the meeting that the Museum Center at Five Points will be hosting an ancient religious artifacts exhibit. The exhibit is currently in Houston, Tx and includes objects such as coins bearing the likeness of Pontius Pilate and funerary urns. 

The only other city in the country that the exhibit will go to after Cleveland is Los Angeles, Ca. Mayor Tom Rowland encouraged anyone who is interested to become a member of the museum.

Another update came from Cleveland Utility. Fire hydrants owned by the city will now be color coded to indicate the gallons of water per minute the unit can produce. 

With the recent passing of Cleveland Judge Bill Moss, the council also voted to suspend city courts for two weeks.

Roy Exum: Saban: ‘Ratings Don’t Matter’

When the first College Football Playoff rankings were released earlier this week, Alabama football coach Nick Saban got it right on the button when he shrugged, “I don't even care, to be honest with you."
