The Selma Town Council heard from supporters of the Selma swimming pool but fell short of voting to preserve it. At its Oct. 10 meeting, the council voted unanimously to put down $500 in earnest money.
The earnest money gives the town 30 days to thoroughly inspect the property and resolve other issues before purchasing it. The purchase price is $4,670.
Council members also said that if the town purchases the property it’s not committed to reopen the pool.
