Butler City Council voted Thursday to support a state grant application from the county for $100,000 to demolish the swimming pool house at Butler Memorial Park and fill in the pool, which was closed in 2004.
The Butler County Redevelopment Authority is submitting the application to the Department of Community and Economic Development on behalf of the city, Councilman Jeff Smith said.
A $10,000 match from the city is included in the $100,000 grant, but the cost of engineering, oversight and cleaning out the building could serve as an in-kind match, he said.
