Council, parks board will talk about Farmington's outdoor pool


Most people probably will not think twice when the Farmington outdoor pool closes for the season Aug. 18. It happens every year, and most forget about the pool by the time the school year starts two weeks later.

Most people, though, aren't on the Farmington City Council or the parks and recreation commission. And those folks definitely will not forget about the pool in the upcoming months.
