KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - A pool that had been in use for the last four decades in Ketchikan will be demolished.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports (https://is.gd/ktoCv5) the borough assembly this week approved a $688,000 contract to demolish the Mike Smithers Pool.

The lot near Ketchikan High School will be filled in. Borough officials say no development is currently planned at the site.

The pool has been in use since the 1970s, but it was replaced by the Gateway Aquatic Center in 2012.
