Rain slows up work on 4th Avenue project

Lennox city councilmen and citizens discussed at length what to do with the railroad addition at the June 10 city council meeting.
Mayor Orville Wiebers said the council needed to discuss a date for an auction where four parcels of land would be split. 
Councilman Glenn Nelson suggested that each parcel should be required to include curb and gutter.
Citizens questioned if the railroad had been asked about their thoughts about curb and gutter on their side of the property. Other questions included who would and should pay for curb and gutter on the property and why the area has a proposed through street rather than a cul-de-sac.
“If we want curb and gutter everywhere, this is the place to show that we do. I agree with saving the taxpayer money,” said councilman Tracy West.

Lennox pool opens; features new hours this season

While the Lennox pool was scheduled to open June 7, crews were working on the pumps instead.
Laura Welch, pool manager, said the pool opened June 10. A new pool lift was installed last week at the shallow end of the pool.
Ten lifeguards will protect swimmers this year.
“They won’t have guard room attendants. All lifeguards will be handling all areas of the pool,” Welch said.
The pool features new hours this season. Open swim is noon to 5 p.m. and 7 to 8:30 p.m. Family swim runs from 5 to 7 p.m.
