SUMMER BUMMER: LOUISA MAYOR ANNOUNCES THE LOUISA CITY POOL WILL NOT OPEN AND WILL REMAIN CLOSED FOR THE 2020 SEASON
It looks like it is going to be a long, hot, and especially way drier than normal summer for residents of Louisa, specifically, the children of Louisa (and you could probably add Fort Gay area kids for this, as well as any Lawrence County children too).
Mayor Harold Slone announced at a short news conference on Friday morning that the Louisa City Pool will not open for the 2020 season.
“I don’t see it feasible to open it up at all this season. Most cities around me have definitely announced none this year,” Mayor Slone said in the news conference.
Local residents who have already scheduled a pool party for the late spring into the summer, can contact Louisa City Hall to request a full refund.
Lawrence County Fair officials said Friday they will wait “a couple of weeks” before deciding on whether or not to cancel the fair this year.
Next up: the wait see if the Louisa Fourth of July celebrations gets scuttled.
With the Louisa Septemberfest already canceled, it is likely that horse has left the barn, and is well north of the 50/50 percent highway of cancellation, too.
