Once complete the pool will be a part of operations in conjunction with the local recreation center.
The fundraising efforts got a big boost back in October when the PV City Council voted to commit $100,000 in tourism related funds to the pool project.
Adding to the project is the recent hiring of Billy Tomlinson, who will serve as the aquatic supervisor for both the future water park and the Bosa indoor swimming pool located near the local high school’s campus.
While updating chamber board members Wilson said there have been other developments.
For one it’s been announced the site of the former Love’s store just west of I-35 on state Highway 19 will soon become a Shell gas station and convenience store with a Papa John’s Pizza restaurant inside.
Wilson added she’s been told the Chickasaw Nation plans to move the production operations of Bedre Chocolate next March. The good news, she said, is the tribe plans to do something with the facility located in a southwest portion of PV.
”We will lose Bedre, but the Chickasaw Nation will do something there,” Wilson said. “We just don’t know what that will be.”
