Linda Gullickson updated the Monona City Council on the Monona Family Aquatic Center July 20, at the city’s second monthly meeting, noting that the pool will close for the season on Sunday, Aug. 23. The pet swim is planned for Saturday, Aug. 29.

Gullickson said the pool recently faced pump issues, which forced the cancellation of swimming lessons one day last week. Although the issue was taken care of for now, the council agreed it would be nice to establish more of a maintenance program for the pool in order to prevent problems. They also noted pool improvements might be a good community fundraiser following completion of the library project, as the aquatic center is now 11 years old.

Police report

Police Chief Jo Amsden told the council she’s been busy lately, with the department taking care of several nuisance calls for raccoons and skunks. 

She also broached the subject of trading in one of the department’s two vehicles for a new vehicle. The idea came up after one received some front end damage during a high speed chase last week. The council gave the go-ahead to get some trade-in estimates.

Amsden said the police department is planning a fundraiser for the weekend of Aug. 15. The event will include finger printing for kids and other activities. Apparel will also be for sale. More information will be released as plans progress.
