Modesto City Schools trustees will be asked to approve hiring an architect to design a pool for Enochs High School, diving into a timetable that would have swimmers in the water a year and a half from now.
The report for Monday night's school board agenda does not list a cost for the architectural services. It continues to assume the pool would cost $3.5 million, a figure district officials have said was based on extensive renovation done at a pool at another school.
The district does not yet have $3.5 million to build the Enochs pool using extra taxes paid by homeowners in newer north Modesto subdivisions. Despite earlier assurances the pool would not be built until the district had the money in hand, this report indicates the district would advance $370,650 from other funds to cover the gap until taxes arrive over the next five years.
