Cape Girardeau City Council approves $6 million to rebuild Central Municipal Pool

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – The Cape Girardeau City Council voted on a $6 million proposal to rebuild the Central Municipal Pool.

City council members voted on the contractor the Parks and Recreation Department recommended for the Central Municipal Pool (also known as the Bubble) upgrade. The contractor is the Penzel Construction Company.

Parks and Recreation Director Doug Gannon says the city would want to have pool repairs quickly completed for the community since it is a year-round aquatic facility.

“This has been one of the projects that we identified whenever PRS2 was approved,” Gannon said. “We always knew we wanted to do it. We’re excited that this is coming to fruition now, to get this pool renovated. This is a big swimming community, particularly competitive swimming, and we want to get this facility back up.”

The pool was closed two months ago due to a mechanical issue with the heating and air system.
