Maintenance and cleaning processes have delayed the opening of the Ayr and Millaroo swimming pools.
Burdekin Shire Council Governance and Local Laws Manager Dan Mulcahy said the Ayr Swimming Pool would now re-open to the public on Saturday, September 5.
“The pool traditionally opens on September 1, but we have had to delay that opening to allow the pool to be refilled and chlorine levels to settle,” he said.
“The Millaroo Pool has been cleaned and will be reopened by September 13 once the pool committee has distributed the keys.
“Council apologises for any inconvenience, but to ensure the safety of patrons using the pools these delays were unavoidable.”
