BOLIVAR, Mo. - With Memorial Day weekend coming up, you might be thinking about heading to the local pool.
But if you live in Bolivar, that won't be possible.
Costs for the new aquatic center are growing -- now topping $6 million -- and right now no one knows when it will open.
Instead of swimming in their brand new six-million-dollar pool, City of Bolivar taxpayers are swimming in aquatic center debt and a series of delays from the construction company in charge.
The new center, funded through a tax initiative, was first set to open in September. But that opening has been pushed back.
