The East Grand Forks City Council continued discussions last night about what to do with the city’s aging outdoor pool. Consultants have presented the council with six options ranging from a simple fix starting at one-point-five million dollars to a more advanced six million dollar proposal with added attractions. The big question is how to pay for the project. City leaders have not ruled out a public vote on the plan. Councilman Greg Leigh says he favors a lower cost option because it’s hard to justify spending millions on a pool that is only two months a year. The council will mull things over again in a couple of weeks.
