Wescott Pool in North Pole.

A major overhaul of a 45-year-old borough-owned pool in North Pole could start this summer should the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly sign off on final fund appropriations Thursday night.

Ordinance 2022-20-1V, sponsored by Borough Mayor Bryce Ward, seeks to appropriate $5.7 million for the rehabilitation of the Wescott Memorial Pool in North Pole. The ordinance also consolidates three projects into a single item in an effort to reduce costs.
