In dire need of a change

Posted on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 2:54 pm

In  December of last year, the Board of Supervisors, acting as the Glebe Harbor/Cabin Point Sanitary District Commission, approved granting a contract to Millennium Pool Services to fix up the pool at the clubhouse in Glebe Harbor and Cabin Point. The pool at the clubhouse is just over 50 years old now, and in dire need of refurbishing. Near the end of this month’s Board of Supervisors meeting, the matter of the pool refurbishing came up again during the county administrator’s comment period.

Several change orders to the repair had been brought before the county administrator, which came about after the discovery of a leak in the primary pool and wading pool. The estimate on repairs came to $200 an hour for 20 hours, which comes out to about $4,000. The cup anchors also need to be replaced, which means another $997.50. Lastly, it’s estimated that $5,000 is needed for additional repairs to the wading pool, as it was found that the tiles in the pool were just as deteriorated as the primary pool.

At County Administrator Norm Risavi’s behest, the contract for the repairs to the pool was amended to include the extra $10,000 needed for the wading pool by the Board of Supervisors. The total on pool repairs now comes in at just shy of $68,000.
