The pool in New England opened for business June 1.
It just took the pool in Mott a little longer.
In the case of the Mott pool, the additional wait was caused with by need for parts and repairs.
But the Mott pool opened Monday.
According to a spokesperson for the pool, the final hold up was the weather. On June 7, the repairs had been completed.
They announced the pool was ready on Facebook. “The pool is finally ready to go!!!!! However the weather is not. It has to be at least 65° to open and it is calling for a high of only 58°?
“We thank you once again for your patience while we worked out the kinks,” the post read.
The locks came off at the Mott swimming pool at 1 p.m. Monday.
