City agrees to hire consultant on Colburn Pool's future
The Green Bay Parks Committee is joining with a neighborhood group to come up with a plan for Colburn Pool's future.
The pool on Green Bay's west side has been on the city's budget chopping block for several years because of its age, maintenance issues and declining attendance, but a group of neighbors has come together to try and save it.
Wednesday the committee agreed to spend no more than $13,000, and Friends of Colburn will contribute $3,000, to hire a professional pool consultant to come up with a viable, long-term plan for the pool.
Colburn Pool is the city's last Olympic-sized swimming pool.
