The Carthage Municipal Pool was originally designed in the 1930’s and a renovation was completed in the 1980’s. With significant portions of the facility being between 37 and 90 years old, the facility experiences significant maintenance challenges, such as ongoing pipe leaks. In addition, the outdated layout, features, and amenities, no longer fully serve the needs of our community. The Carthage Municipal Pool has achieved its useful life with respect to typical lifespans and needs of the community. This survey will assist the team in understanding the community needs and priorities for an updated outdoor swimming pool in Carthage. Your thoughts are important in our effort to create a facility that will meet the needs of the Carthage community. Feedback received on this survey will be used to generate the recommended plan for development of a new outdoor aquatic center. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GWVMHL3

FYI - The Public Works Department would like to remind everyone that the majority of the ‘street cut repairs’ around town are related to the Gas line improvements being made by Spire Gas and are put in place by those crews. Some ‘repairs’ are temporary, so please continue to use caution in those work areas. When gas repairs are complete in an area, the Street Superintendent is notified by the gas company and a final inspection of the repair work takes place. If further repair work is needed that work is done under the supervision of the Street Superintendent. If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Office at 417-237-7010.
