2018 pool.tif

Times change, but the Grantsburg Community Pool remains a refuge from hot, sunny days as well as a place for people to gather.

Grantsburg officials approved making improvements to the community pool thanks to a donation from the Grantsburg school district.

The district has donated $25,000 to the community pool repairs. On Monday night the village board approved a number of touch-ups including new paint, concrete repair, tile installation and adding a sink to the concession area.

Public Works Director Chris Bartlett said no company would be able to complete the work this year. He is hoping the projects will be done in the spring.

Other improvements to the pool will be replacing the plumbing, purchasing pool-side furniture and replacing a hair dryer.

In other business:

  • The village board approved former Burnett County Sheriff Ron Wilhelm to be the new airport manager at the Grantsburg Municipal Airport. This was after a recommendation from the village airport committee.
  • Grantsburg will be having trick-or-treat hours on Oct. 31 from 5 p.m. -8 p.m. The board members approved the hours with no opposition but did ask everyone to practice social distancing and respect the houses not participating.
