(Brookville, Ind.) - The public pool in Brookville will be closed for a second straight summer. The Brookville Democrat-American newspaper reports Brookville Town Council President Mike Biltz told the Brookville Redevelopment Commission that the Heap Memorial Pool won’t open this year. The 56-year-old pool was discovered to have a significant leak – about 35,000 gallons per day – in 2015. It was closed in 2016 as the town considered making repairs, which past estimates have put between $150,000 and $1.5 million. A committee was formed and a consultant hired to help the town decide what course of action to take. The consultant has recommended that the current pool be replaced with a new one. There have been some limited discussions on raising money to fund possible construction of a new public pool.
