The Elk Point City Council held a special meeting Monday, May 18, as the Board of Adjustment to approve a survey plat for Greg Stroschein. The replat of Lots 1 through 5 of Stro Addition is a replat of Lots in Weston 7 Hoffman’s Addition Block 45 and Lots 1 through 6 in Miller’s Addition Block 1.

However, once the replat was approved, the council focused its attention on the Elk Point swimming pool, and whether it could be opened this year.

City Administrator Derek Tuttle said they have five applicants for open lifeguard positions, but should have eight or nine total to run the pool. One problem is that training is currently not available, so only people who have their certificates from last year are eligible to apply.
