Oak Hill Council addresses pool, park issues

Staff Writer

Work is continuing on the village-owned Margaret Ann Pool in Oak Hill as the summer season nears. During the Oak Hill Village Council meeting held Tuesday night, May 9, Village Council members were updated on the pool's status by Mayor Rob Leonard.

The mayor explained the pool needs to be power-washed, painted and filled up with water before it opens. The pool's water meter is being reconnected and the village workers are making final preparations on the grounds. The lifeguards have been hired and the concession stand will have to be stocked. The village has a target date of Memorial Day weekend to open the pool.

On other matters addressed during the council meeting, Leonard explained the village is expecting the Rayner Tree Service Co. to cut down trees in Aetna Park. The village has a $4,500 contract with the company to remove nine trees, the roots, and also to plant new grass. The job is expected to be completed before the Festival of Flags, which will be held on Memorial Day weekend. Part of the problem is a sycamore Tree is growing up against the stage. Council members are also worried about children getting hurt and feel removing the trees will make the park much safer and more presentable this year.

Leonard also reported the village workers have been busy repairing water-line leaks and stated they have all or nearly all of them taken care of at the present time. The Oak Hill Village Council will be meeting again Tuesday, May 23 at 7:30 p.m.
