Sibley, Iowa — The Outdoor Aquatic Center of Osceola County hopes to open this summer for a summer full of swimming fun.
Cory Dykstra, who is the City of Sibley’s Water Superintendent and Pool Renovation Project Manager, tells us that work on the facility has been going on since mid-May, 2018. He tells us what contractors have been doing recently.
He says the contract end dates for both the pool and bathhouse are May 15, 2019.
He tells us that the facility will be packed with features for bathers to enjoy when it’s finished.
Dykstra says the pool part of the project is estimated to cost $2.1 million, with the bathhouse renovation estimated to cost $400,000 to $500,000. Sibley voters approved the city to issue general obligation loan notes in the amount of $1.6 million. Donors also gave a half million dollars toward the project.
