A public swimming pool in Hanover Township, New Jersey, will soon get some much-needed care as officials decide on a contractor to undertake repairs.
The repairs would focus largely on the perimeter of the pool, which requires extensive retiling and resurfacing, according to the Hanover Eagle. The pool maintenance building also requires a new roof. Crews are expected to remove the existing roof and roof deck and replace it with a synthetic rubber membrane. The total cost of the project is expected to reach up to $115,000, with $55,000 of that being spent on new tile and surfaces.
Members of the township committee will choose a contract bid for the pool repairs on April 12. The Bee Meadow swimming pool was opened in 1964 inside the 89-acre Bee Meadow Park. The facility features a kid's pool and two water slides, which give the pool a distinctive "Z" shape. Pool season in Hanover Township runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The township holds events at the pool and surrounding park, including live music nights, movie nights, free bingo games and a late-July Halloween party.
