LWV Piedmont to host town hall meeting about Piedmont pool on Nov. 4

On Nov 4, Special Assistant Paul Benoit, Program Manager George Sanen and City Manager Sara Lillevand will give the community an update on how the design and construction process will work, and how bond oversight will be handled.

The League of Women Voters will host a virtual town hall on Piedmont’s plans for the new community pool.  In November 2020, Piedmont voters approved $19.5 million in General Obligation bonds to finance a new pool. The current pool closed indefinitely on September 8, 2020. 

The event will include brief presentations from the city’s team, followed by audience Q&A moderated by Piedmont League President Lorrel Plimier.  

If you’re wondering what’s happening with the pool project, how the design and construction process will work, and how bond oversight will be handled, please join us to find out.

The Town Hall will feature the following speakers:

  • Sara Lillevand, Piedmont City Administrator
  • Paul Benoit, Special Assistant to the City Administrator for the Community Pool project
  • George Sanen, Project Manager
