City council opts not to have pool heater

It was a tough decision by the Philip City Council at their meeting Monday, August 3, but the cost of propane to heat the pool was the determining factor in their decision not to accept the gift of a pool heater from the Haakon County Young Women.

Carol Schofield stated a salesman from The Pool and Spa Center in Rapid City had looked at the Philip pool facility. She noted he said there was room for a heating system in the building.

HCYW said they would purchase the $4,000 heater and pay the $1,000 for installation, if the city would pay for the rest.
