Maquoketa,IA-The community pool on the corner of Summit and Eliza Street has been demolished in Maquoketa. In 2007, a new YMCA was built just down the road and the community felt there was no need for an outdoor pool. Now, the school district is interested in the property. Since the football field is right next door, this area would be good for possible parking. The school district has also talked about using it for geothermal wells for the nearby middle school.
Brian Wagner is the City Manager an says they will try and use the land to benefit the city in the best possible way.
The city board says they will move forward with the sale to the school and should see results in the next 4 to 6 weeks.
