Tybee Island officials want to let the voters decide if the town should build a public swimming pool.
The city council on Thursday discussed a resolution that, if backed by the local delegation to the Georgia General Assembly, would place a referendum on a ballot sometime in 2015. As proposed, the referendum would give Tybee voters a voice in whether they would support city officials moving ahead with finding sources of funding to build the pool.
Mayor Jason Buelterman said the vote would mark the second time voters weighed in on a public pool for Tybee. The first vote in 2004 was paired with a millage increase. Tybee voters said no.
