East Grand Forks pool could cost city more money

City leaders are set to discuss potential legal action against the company that worked on the pool in 2016.

EAST GRAND FORKS — The pool in East Grand Forks could soon cost the city more money.

Last summer, the pool's pump failed and crews had to install a temporary one.

On Tuesday night, they're considering buying one that could cost around $20,000.

City leaders said it'll help circulate the water quickly next summer.

"It'll just increase the flow and we can turn the pool over faster and it'll operate more in spec," said East Grand Forks City Administrator David Murphy.

The $2 million pool was closed for the season just a year after opening and problems also plagued the pool this year.
