The City of Pendleton will not open the pool this summer due to uncertainty in the budget.  This week, the State of Oregon released guidelines that would have allowed the pool to open.  However, there is concern that the financial losses would much higher than usual.  “The swimming pool is a community asset that costs taxpayers around $250,000 per year.  There is a significant risk that we could lose much more than this if we were to open,” said City Manager Robb Corbett.  “Given all of the budget uncertainty this year due to COVID, we cannot afford to take that risk.”
