School pool getting face-lift

A local high school plans to spend more than $300,000 in property tax money to upgrade its swimming pool this summer.

Clark-Pleasant Community School Corp. likely will spend $345,000 to $395,000 to renovate the pool at Whiteland Community High School. That amount includes fees for a local company to create plans for and oversee the project.

The work will be paid for with property tax money Clark-Pleasant collects for building projects and maintenance. Because of property tax caps, Clark-Pleasant has been slow to spend that money in recent years; but the repairs are needed so the high school can continue to use the pool for years, business and finance director Steve Sonntag said.

The concrete gutter, which serves as a border for the pool, has multiple sections that need to be patched. The high school also wants to add a stainless steel gutter on top of the existing concrete to help the pool last longer.
