Council to Budget One Time Funding to Keep Gahanna Pools Open for 2015

Council to Budget One Time Funding to Keep Gahanna Pools Open for 2015

Citizen input and the City’s strategic planning process played a key role in its decision to extend pool operations for one more year.

During the December 15 Council meeting, the City’s 2015 budget was unanimously passed by Gahanna City Council.  The 2015 budget will fund pool operations for Hunters Ridge Pool and Gahanna Swimming Pool through the City’s use of excess General Fund balance.  Excess General Fund balance is similar to a personal savings account and is not designated for specific use.  Similar to 2014, the Department of Parks & Recreation plans to contract concessions operations, water quality maintenance and lifeguards. The department will manage the front desk staff and seasonal opening and closing in 2015.

AEP and City Working Together to Reduce Power Outages in Gahanna

Trees that grow near power lines can be dangerous and cause power outages. Although outages occur for a variety of reasons, one of the most common causes of power outages is tree limbs falling onto power lines. To prevent dangerous situations, the City of Gahanna works with AEP to regularly trim and remove trees on a rotating schedule, in addition to clearing branches from power lines. AEP contracts with Asplundh Tree Expert Company Inc, a licensed international tree -care company.
