Community meets with pool consultant

Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014 — More than two dozen local residents met with Justin Caron, principal vice president of the Aquatic Design Group, to discuss options for a community pool in Susanville at a public workshop held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30 at the Susanville City Council Chambers.

Caron said his firm has designed more than 100 pool projects — both indoor and outdoor — including some at higher elevations than Susanville and others in cold weather climates.

The city council and the board of supervisors each have agreed to allocate as much as $200,000 per year for 15 years for the community pool project.
