LINGLE – Lingle Pool and Whipple Park will see fresh coats of paint in the near future. Council members approved a $3,000 bid from local artist Barry Lee to paint the park bathrooms and pool house at a meeting Wednesday. Lee has also been commissioned to repaint the park’s bandshell in anticipation of the town’s upcoming centennial celebration in mid-July.
In addition, Maintenance Department Supervisor Larry Haeffelin reported workers have poured concrete at the pool and the park and are readying the pool to open, scheduled for later this month. Haeffelin said his department has already filled one roll-off dumpster prior to the town’s annual Clean-Up Week, which will be the first two weeks in June.
