Board OKs pool bids

A new aquatic center in Greenwood with a lazy river and slides is expected to cost less than the city planned to spend.

The city park board approved hiring five contractors to build the facility for a total cost of $7.2 million. Construction could begin as soon as June 1, and the new facility in Freedom Park is planned to open in May 2015.

The city redevelopment commission is expected to approve the bids from the five companies to build the lap pool and lazy river, pour asphalt for the parking lots, extend electrical, sewer and water utility services to the property and also install heating and air conditioning, community development services director Mark Richards said in an email.
