Opp Pool Will Not Be Ready For Summer Season
In April of 2013, Opp City officials said the city is getting a new pool. They expected construction to only take six months, but the mayor says due to delays, there will not be any splashing this Summer.
He says weather and sewage issues are to blame for the delays, "We are doing all the underground maintenance of it. It's putting a brand new sewer in, brand new sewer drains, man holes, and water that was well needed. A lot of it has collapsed throughout the year and through the neighborhood, and we went ahead and spent the money and corrected the problem before we put the pool in."
