EAST CHICAGO | Money remaining from a federal grant received last year will be used to repair a crack in the Goodman Park swimming pool, East Chicago officials said.
Park Superintendent Francisco Rosado said $75,000 of the approximately $120,000 grant was spent last year to purchase a chair compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and to resurface the city's largest pool.
Additional money left from the grant will be used in part to restore the bathhouse at Goodman Park.
