      Referendum could decide future of Wavering pool

      The Park District is in discussions about the future of the pool.

      Wavering Park may be closing down in the near future. The Park District is in discussions about the future of the pool.

      The pool, built in the early 1980s, has seen a steady decline in attendance and will be in need of some serious repairs in the coming years.

      Park District Executive Director Ed Seger says the repairs could cost between four and five millions dollars.

      Seger says the pool will most likely go to a referendum to decide the pool's future.

      "Should the Quincy Park District basically borrow five million dollars to replace wavering pool and do you feel that it is worth it. Is that something you want to spend your tax dollars on?" Quincy District Parks Executive Director Ed Seger said.

      Seger says the pools life before changes need to be made is between five and ten years.
