BLACKFOOT — Following the final defeat of the Blackfoot swimming pool bond Tuesday, the city will officially close the pool Saturday.

City officials are unsure if it will ever reopen.

The city is offering partial refunds to patrons who have purchased passes to the pool that will no longer be valid after this week. In order to receive a refund, individuals will need to complete a claim form at City Hall, located at 157 N Broadway in Blackfoot.

Individuals will need to provide identification, address information and the pass. If the City is able to verify the pass information on its’ computer system (which dates back to approximately November 2015), no further verification should be needed, according to a news release.

If the city cannot verify the pass information, individuals will need to provide proof of purchase, such as a receipt, cancelled check or other similar information.

All claims must be filed no later than close of business on Dec. 13, 2018. Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for processing of the refund.
