Cleveland's Mosby Pool Should Be Open To Public On Thursday After Many Delays

Tuesday, July 29, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

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.

Mr.

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.

Injustice Is Terrible, But Shouldn't Lead To Rioting - And Response (2)

Injustice is terrible.  Period.  I am totally wowed, amazed, and grateful that the six officers have been charged in Baltimore.  Justice will be done like with the officer that shot the man in the back.   That being said,  I don't understand why, when atrocities like this happen, protests and marches can evolve into terrible rioting.  Fortunately ...

Roy Exum: From Private To General

It was quite a thing back in March, when Florida Gov. Rick Scott named Maj. Gen. Michael Calhoun to command the state’s National Guard. After all, not many who sign up as a “buck private” climb the ladder all the way to become the state’s Adjutant General, and when you add the fact the highly-respected Calhoun is an African-American, the story only gets better. But there is more: ... (click for more)
