Dormant Troy pools could get second chance at life

TROY - The city of Troy could re-open at least one of its pools if a contractor can be found on short notice.

The South Troy Pool and the Knickerbacker Park Pool were closed the past two summers because there was no money for repairs.

City officials say this year's budget includes $6 million to repair the pool in South Troy and replace the pool in Lansingburgh.

At least one of those pools could reopen by July 1 if the city gets the bids out by the end of this month.
