Bad News For 8-Lane Laramie Pool

Laramie, WY – Supporters of an 8-lane pool in Laramie received bad news Tuesday night, but the city's isn't giving up on the idea. A group that raised private money for the pool heard that adding it to the new recreation center would cost $1.8 million. Friends of Community Recreation had raised $1.2 million. Group President Lisa Kinney says they're not giving up and want to work with the city to see if it has any funding sources available. She admits the city's tough financial situation is a concern. The architect will come back with a revised estimate for the pool in two weeks.
