County to hold hearing on pool property transfer

The King County Council will hold a public hearing at 1:30 p.m. Monday to determine whether to transfer ownership of the Island’s public pool to the Vashon Island School Disrict.

The county, which owned and operated the pool, has leased the property to the district for the past 40 years. Now that the county has turned over pool management to the Vashon Park District, it wants to transfer the property to the school district, which will in turn transfer the property to the park district.

“Everything’s in place. This is just the final little piece,” said Wendy Braicks, director of the park district.
