LETCHER Co., Ky. (WYMT) - Those living in Letcher County are going to be a lot cooler come July thanks to a new outdoor facility.
Construction is continuing for a new pool in Jenkins.
Officials say the pool will include a 20 foot pool deck and two slides, one of which will resemble a piece of coal.
You will have to pay a small fee to enter, but Todd DePriest says they want everyone to take advantage of this facility and the great location.
DePriest says this addition is part of a larger plan.
"It's going to be part of a bigger complex. Later on we're going to have a large meeting hall built on the back of this building. We're also going to develop a walk that will take people around the lake and back across the dam. They'll be able to exercise, swim and we have softball going on," said DePriest.
DePriest says they hope to open the Jenkins city pool on the 4th of July.
