Jacksboro Getting New City Pool

Jacksboro is getting the green light on plans for a new public pool. The city has been without a pool for five years. The new pool will be at the former city swimming pool site off South Main Street near Los Creek. The Pool/Park Committee placed a $600,000 dollar price tag on the project. The city of Jacksboro would have to commit $170,000. The facility could be built in about three months - in plenty of time for the 2011 swim season.
