The community of Sedgwick is in the process of trying to decide if a new pool will be built in the city park.

The proposal calls for a 3,846-square-foot pool that would cost about $800,000.

The pool would be built as an addition to the existing spray park and include a building for admissions, concessions, first aid, restrooms, showers and equipment storage.

The proposal also calls for tables and lounge chairs around the pool and two covered shelters.

The city recently completed a survey of the community, with 95 of the 183 slips returned saying no to the idea.

That means 51.9 percent of those responding to the survey are against the idea.

However, only about 26 percent of the survey slips were returned.

There will be a formal vote this fall, as a mail-in ballot election is planned.

According to a chart distributed by the city, if a bond for the pool is approved it would mean a mill levy increase of 11 mills for a 10-year bond or eight mills for a 15-year bond.

The owner of a $100,000 home would see a tax increase of between $200 and $275 annually.
