Opening day for Chillicothe's Donald M. Smith Memorial Swimming Pool is slated for the first of June, but could be more like June 7th.

Mayor Jack Everson says they have found a less expensive way to seal leaks in the pool, spending $35,000 to stop the pool from leaking with a rubber seal under the tiles, instead of replacing the entire gutter system at $500,000.

The mayor says a June 1st "soft opening" is still possible, but probably more likely are looking at June 7th as the actual open to the public.
