Arlington City Council and SE School Board meet to discuss the swimming pool issue

The Arlington City Council and Sibley East School Board met to discuss the indoor swimming pool issue on Monday night, Sept. 26.


The special meeting was held in the Council Chambers at the Arlington Event Center. Five members from the public were in attendance.

Superintendent Comments
Sibley East Superintendent Dr. Joe Libby was asked to give a brief history of the swimming pool issue at the Sibley East Middle School/-High School in Arlington.


Dr. Libby said it costs Sibley East approximately $40,000 to operate the swimming pool each year. He said about $32,000 of the total cost is to heat the pool.


Dr. Libby said Sibley East and the City of Arlington equally shared the cost to operate the swimming pool for years. The City of Arlington, however, stopped their contribution 13 years ago.


He further commented that Sibley East lost its swimming pool manager due a retirement two years ago. Dr. Libby reported that there is nobody on staff who is certified or qualified to hold that position. Sibley East, he said, has done an extensive search to find a swimming pool manager, but has been unsuccessful. Sibley East, he added, does have lifeguards, but they are all high school students.


Dr. Libby also reported that there is approximately $115,000 in total costs to make repairs on the swimming pool. He said the swimming pool can still be used, but the main drain pipe needs to be repaired probably this summer. He added that Sibley County could run an operating referendum, but not until next November.
