Dave Sheldon, head of the company contracted to construct the Mosby Pool, told the Cleveland City Council on Monday afternoon that the pool should be open to the public on Thursday.
Many parents in the community have been frustrated because the pool was originally scheduled to be completed before summer so that their children could enjoy it.
Councilman Richard Banks asked Mr. Sheldon to explain to them the delays.
Sheldon said, "We've had delays due to weather. We've had delays due to permit concerns, We've had delays due to underground water."
He also said many parts had not been delivered on time, which also caused significant delays.
He said, "As quick as we got parts, we put them in."
Mr. Sheldon agreed to meet with parents in the community to discuss possibly planning a pool party as an apology for the delayed opening.
City officials said Mosby Pool will have extended hours and be open on weekends as long as it is warm enough to swim.
Also discussed at the meeting was the new electronic ticketing system being adopted by the Cleveland Police Department. The new method will allow officers to save time by not having to write out everything by hand. It will also help court clerks by sending in tickets automatically online.
It was announced that Lee University's summer graduation will take place during the weekend.
