Cleveland, Tn., city officials cut the ribbon to Mosby Pool Friday afternoon. The opening of the new half-million dollar swimming pool was delayed nearly 30 days waiting for approval by the state health department, weather, surface and groundwater intrusion.
City pools normally open Memorial Day weekend and close after Labor Day. Since the new pool opened only four days before the start of the new school year, swimming at Mosby Pool is free and the will stay open as long as the weather is warm.
Parents complained and city council members asked questions during the summer-long delay, but none of that seemed to matter Friday morning based on the sound of the city's youth laughing and splashing.
