On its website Tuesday, March 8, the City of Sebastopol announced that Ives Pool will be closed beginning March 9, due to mechanical issues with the pool’s heater.

“Public Works staff made every effort to acquire the failing part needed to repair the heaters ability to operate prior to complete failure of the unit,” said Dante Del Prete, the city’s public works superintendent, in the public notice. “Due to shipping delays and parts availability the critical failure of the heating element failed prior to having the required parts and repairs made.”

According to the city, the parts are on rush order and the repair will be prioritized once equipment is on hand.

“We apologize for this inconvenience and are working closely with the contractor to ensure this repair will be completed as soon as possible,” reads the notice.
