A major overhaul of the Bethalto Municipal Swimming Pool is in the works. Village Officials approved a resolution authorizing the mayor to apply for Park Enhancement Project or PEP funds from Madison County during last night’s meeting.

Mayor Alan Winslow says the $125,000 grant from the Metro East Park District would cover 100% of the costs of the extensive renovations.

 Winslow says the grant is awarded to the village each year on a per capita basis and will allow the Village to finance the project by using anticipated grant monies over the next four years.

Construction on the project is expected to begin in September and be completed in time for the start of the 2015 season.
