MISSION – After being on hold since April, Mission Parks and Recreation swimming pool projects are getting re-started with a new contractor hired to finish out the projects. The projects include repairs to the swimming pool at Catholic War Veteran’s Park located on south Mayberry Rd. and the new natatorium at Bannworth Park located on Shary Rd. The original completion date for the projects was September.
Julian Gonzalez, Parks and Recreation Director, said, even though they are happy with the work done by the previous contractor, the jobs were put on hold around April when the city decided they could not give the contractor more time. The contractor was not able to fulfill timeline restrictions. Gonzalez said the city had been very generous when the contractor would ask for more time. It came to a point they had to stop giving those extensions and find another route to get the job completed.
