G.B. council will meet on Colburn Pool Tuesday
0 0

The Green Bay city council will hold a special meeting next Tuesday, in the wake of the mayor's veto for the Colburn Pool project.

Members will take a vote, in an attempt to override Mayor Jim Schmitt's decision. They'll need a two-thirds majority to do that.

The council voted 7-5 earlier this month, to borrow an additional $2.3 three million for an Olympic-style, 50-meter pool.

Ald. Tom DeWane is the council president. He says Schmitt's first veto might lead some members to change sides. He says traditionally, they've moved forward to other issues once the will of the council was determined.

The city initially was going to spend $3.5 million, but the bids for construction were higher than anticipated. A private group raised $1 million.
