Upshur County Commission Hears Discussions About Building New Pool

Posted: Updated:

The Upshur County Pool has been a community staple for more than 30 years.

The pool has faced several challenges over the years.

It recently closed for a week due to a broken pump.

Now, Upshur County Commission is hearing discussions about building a new pool.

Pool officials said despite its age, the pool is still a resource the community can use.

"I could agree the need to want that, but at the same time our pool is so special that we do provide that length. We do provide that aspect that other pools can't provide so it's a pretty special place how it is," said Mike Gitzen, Upshur County Pool director.

The Upshur County Pool is the only 50 meter Olympic-style pool in the area and is used by several swim teams

Commission said it will take those discussions under advisement.
