Local Contractors Offer To Donate Labor For Repairs To City Pool
Thursday, October 17, 2013
“This group of contractors has generously offered to provide labor pro bono, however, the City would need to cover the cost of materials,” stated Sanchez. The material costs, which are estimated at $10,000 will neither be a hindrance to the effort, nor will it impact the city’s budget, as nearly $100,000 in various Community Development Block Grants have already been set aside for the project.
“The community response to the Davey Lopes pool closure has been overwhelming, and it’s clear that the pool is an asset to the south side of Providence, ” said Sanchez, who is hopeful that the repairs will be completed in time to open next summer.
