Jourdanton’s pool delayed; Pleasanton’s schedule/information released




 

 

The recent rains have further delayed the completion of the Jourdanton Sports Complex swimming pool. City Manager Kendall Schorsch hoped that the pool would be ready for the summer. “While the pool construction may be completed, we need to make sure that the pumps, drains and all that goes with it, is working,” said Schorsch.

Roads and other infrastructure also need to be completed before the public would be able to fully use the pool.

Schorsch also added that a soft opening for the pool may be held if it is able to open this season.
