College internships and scholarships are some of the ways that we attract top talent.” For more information click here.
The Columbia City Park Board decided at a recent Park Board meeting to repair a leak at Burnworth Pool, and reopen for the summer 2016 season. The unfortunate news is that the current boiler/heater at the pool is out of commission. The State Boiler Inspector inspected the boiler in September and required that it be disconnected due to many faults, including internal fires that had at some point been present inside the boiler. The cost of replacing the boiler was quoted for $17,000. The Park Board decided that it wasn’t worth that investment since the plan was to only keep Burnworth open for one more season. The good news is that the pool will be open for the 2016 season. The bad news is that unless it is a very hot summer, the water may be a little cooler than normal.
