Willard 'out of money,' forced to close pool early

Area residents who enjoy the city pool might have to find alternative ways of beating the heat as summer winds down.

City manager Brian Humphress said Willard will close the pool sometime this week.

"We're basically out of money," the city manager said. He added the city is trying to determine how much it will be reimbursed from damage inflected by the June 18 storm. That could determine how long the pool will remain open, he said.

The cost of the clean up exceeds $40,000, with final figures to be determined, Humphress said. The money will come out of the city's general fund and street fund, he said.

Humphress also said the pool opened earlier this year than previous years.
