Our View: Thumbs up to waiting on pool decision
Thumbs up: To the DeKalb Park District board for making the responsible decision to table any further decisions on the Hopkins Pool rehabilitation until new commissioners are seated. Park officials were scheduled to vote Thursday on approving a construction firm to build the new pool, but commissioners instead voted to table the topic until May, when three new commissioners will take their seats on the board. In state and federal government, lame duck sessions can be a time for elected officials to quickly vote on long-term changes without having to deal with the repercussions. This decision gives the new commissioners a voice from the start in what will likely be the biggest project of their terms.
