Mount Pleasant City Manager Ed Thatcher announced today that the community pool at Dellwood Park has sustained significant damage and most likely will not be available for use this summer.

“The community pool is a city amenity enjoyed by so many in our community that also offers seasonal employment opportunities,” said Thatcher. “We are very sorry this has occurred, but we are now working with the appropriate professionals to assess the damage and recommend the most timely and cost effective plan for repairing and re-opening the facility.”

Thatcher added that the community pool is 69 years old and all repair options available will be presented to City Council for discussion and action. More information will be provided to citizens as it becomes available.
