Cuyama Pool Fixes Expected to Finish in 2017


Reconstruction of the Cuyama pool complex should be finished by early 2017, with the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday okaying the solicitation of construction bids. The pool ​— ​opened in 2009 ​— ​has been shuttered since 2012 when a sink event damaged the pools, deck, and building. Last November, the supervisors authorized the complex’s repair, which is expected to cost $2 million. It cost $2.4 million to build.
