Councilor wants city to pitch in for pool makeover

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A councilor wants the City of Albuquerque to pitch in to finish a swimming pool makeover.

The pool at Rio Grande high school, used by students and the community was deteriorating so it was demolished.

The county and state have put in most of $3 million to replace it and asked APS to chip in another $400,000.

But the school board voted against it and now South Valley councilor Klarissa Pena is considering an ordinance to have the city pay for it.

No word when the ordinance will be drafted or when it would be heard by the city council. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
