NEOSHO, Mo. — The Neosho municipal pool will soon be open for business once again.

Just over a week ago the pool was forced to closed because of peeling in the recently applied resurfacing material (seen below). But now, according to the city’s Facebook, repairs have been made and it’s ready to open.

To celebrate the occasion, Neosho Parks Department has announced in conjunction with Neosho YMCA that Friday, June 24th will be a free swim day as well as the pool’s official reopening.

Visitors will be let in at 12:30 PM.

NEOSHO, Mo. — An area pool could soon be back in business again soon.

The Neosho Municipal Pool re-opened for the summer over the Memorial Day weekend. It closed shortly after because chunks of resurfacing material started peeling off the sides, which caused the pool to leak.

A Kansas City-based company had installed a new surface a few weeks before the holiday weekend. That company will do it again at no additional cost to the city.

“The pool will then be treated with the finished product, finished coat on the following day which will be Wednesday, then it has to cure for four days before we can fill it back up and we plan to have the pool back in operation by the end of next week anyway,” said Clint Dalbom, Neosho Parks Director.

Officials say it may be a good idea to call the municipal pool during the middle of next week to make sure they still plan to reopen it on Thursday or Friday.
