South Troy Pool passes final construction inspection


TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The South Troy Pool, which has been closed for nearly four years, has been given clearance to reopen.

The city received final construction approval Thursday morning.

According to Troy Mayor Patrick Madden, “We had previously planned on the pool being available free to city residents this summer.” However, currently, the pool is planned to have a $2 daily fee for residents over 12, and a $5 daily fee for non-residents.

Even so, when it does reopen, the pool will likely be available to city residents free of charge. City Council President Carmella Mantello says the council is likely to pass legislation to amend the city code and waive the fee.

The mayor’s office said necessary safety plans are being finalized. As of Wednesday, they were still in the process of hiring employees for the facility.
