WADSWORTH: City Council Tuesday adopted legislation to advertise for bids to construct an Aquatic Center.
Plans call for an Aquatic Center to be built on three acres at 625 Broad Street, just north of the new Community Center, which was dedicated earlier this week.
The Aquatic Center, expected to cost $2.8 million, is planned to have three main bodies of water including a leisure pool, lap pool and a slide splashdown.
Enclosed by a six-foot black vinyl chain link fence and some mounding, the facility is expected to have a "beach," interactive spray features, shade structures, in water bench seating, basketball, three separate slides accessed from one tower and a vortex pool with continuously moving water.
The Planning Commission approved the plans last month and a construction manager was hired in December as previous steps to bring the Center to fruition.
In other action, the council agreed to lease employees through Structure Personnel, Inc. for seasonal jobs including the flushing of water hydrants, collection of yard waste and the raking of leaves. These contracted services are not to exceed $49,000.
Service Director Chris Easton announced that April 29 will begin Spring Cleanup Week. During that week, the city will collect items too large for the trash receptacles. Some items will not be eligible for collection, but may be eligible to be taken to the city's transfer station or to the Medina County Recycle Center.
