OSKALOOSA — The Oskaloosa City Council approved a payment of $14,339.98 for services completed to the Early Childhood Recreation and Education Center.

The education center has been an ongoing issue for the City of Oskaloosa. The project has suffered from contracting issues to a dispute over the construction of the indoor pool. A report that the council reviewed for their regular meeting on June 20 states that cracking has already begun to occur on the south and east walls of the competition pool.

The process remains ongoing as the city council continues efforts to complete the education center.
