City's pool committee begins its work

A group of about 12 community members appointed by Blackfoot Mayor Paul Loomis to advise on the future of the Blackfoot Municipal swimming pool held their first meeting on Tuesday evening.
The group, consisting of city and county representatives with a variety of backgrounds nominated businessman Charley Kotter to serve as chairman of the committee. Committee member Lori Kay, who is the vice-principal of Blackfoot High School, volunteered to serve as Kotter's back-up.
Blackfoot City Councilman Chris Jensen will also oversee the group, serving as a "liaison between the committee and the city council." Jensen will be a non-voting member.
