Itâ€™s been a long time coming, but on Monday, April 4, the city of Broken Bow officially broke ground on a new swimming pool and aquatic center. The citizens of Broken Bow approved a bond for the new pool last May.
â€śThis all started seven years ago when we had some major issues with the pool. and the water level in the pool dropped six inches during a single swim meet. Jason White and I started talking. We thought the pool only had a couple of years left,â€ť remarked Broken Bow City Council Scott Spanel.
