Update: This source of city funds has been corrected from a previous blog post.
The Radler Foundation has agreed to pay two thirds of the repair costs for Fort Worth's historic Forest Park Pool, city staff told the Parks and Community Services Advisory Board. The city will pay one third.
The board endorsed the staff recommendation that the city enter into an agreement for a grant from Radler. The City Council is to vote on the agreement Dec. 11.
Parks director Richard Zavala told the parks board that the total cost of the project hasn't been estimated yet, but that it would be ready for the council vote
The city announced in July that Radler, a Fort Worth foundation, had agreed to help repair the pool, which has been closed since 2010 and is set to re-open in May.
The city said then that its share of the repairs would range as high as $200,000, to be paid for from capital improvement funds.
