Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke unveiled more detailed plans for replacing Lloyd Pool. The proposed aquatics center will have two indoor pools, one for recreation and another 50 meter pool for competitive swimming and diving.

The new pool will be built in Garvin Park next to Bosse Field, but it doesn’t yet have a name.

"It’s not gonna be the Winnecke Aquatics Center," he joked. Winnecke said the city will unveil the corporation with naming rights Friday morning.

The money comes from the city’s riverboat fund and will pay for the planning and construction of a new dock and visitor center for the LST across from Le Merigot Hotel.

The two major candidates for Evansville mayor fielded questions Thursday during a joint appearance.

Incumbent Republican Lloyd Winnecke and Democratic challenger Gail Riecken spoke at a forum sponsored by the Southwest Indiana Chamber.

Riecken suggested the city tap into a major downtown resource, the Ohio River. She said the city should develop a commercial port.
