Pool shut down

Those looking to take a leisurely dip or put in a few laps at the Ruth Inch Memorial Pool are out of luck until next month.

The pool closed for its annual shutdown Tuesday evening, and is set to reopen to the public on Sept. 22, according to a post on the City of Yellowknife's website.

The pool's annual shutdown is a chance for city workers to do some cleaning and well-needed repairs. Last year, the city rebuilt the pool's filter pits and serviced the chlorine systems.

Large waste item pickup

Yellowknife residents who receive regular curbside garbage pickup will be able to have large items collected by the city free of charge Sept. 8 to 12.

Residents wanting large items picked up must fill out a form that is available at city hall or online, no later than 12 p.m. on Sept. 5, according to a city news release.

Items that will not be picked up include large appliances, microwaves, hot water tanks, car tires, construction waste, hazardous waste items and recyclables.

Annual Hercules pull

The eighth-annual First Air Law Enforcement Hercules Aircraft Pull is Sept. 6 at the Yellowknife Airport.

Teams of 15 will be on the tarmac, flexing their muscles to see who can pull the almost 90,000-pound airplane 15 feet the quickest.

The event is organized by the NT Law Enforcement Torch Run, which exists solely to fundraise for the NWT Special Olympics program.

New budget tool online

The City of Yellowknife has launched an online tool that provides a transparent view of the city's revenues and expenses. Multi-year trends in the city's financials and detailed information from within each department is included in the OpenGov website.

The new tool will allow residents, business owners and city staff to use the web-based software to easily access, understand and analyze the city's annual budget and transactions, according to a city news release.

The move comes as part of the city's engagement with the public on the 2015 budget.
