During the regular meeting of the Centre City Council Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Mark Mansfield informed the Council, the new Aquatic Center will not be opening on Memorial Day as planned. The Mayor said getting the pumps and filters has been challenging. He said for now, the next target day for opening is June 15th contingent upon getting the necessary equipment and having good weather for construction workers to get the parking lot completed.
