"There is a high level of anxiety. Is it going to stay open? Is it going to close," says swimmer Kristin McGuinness.

The effort to save the Warren County Aquatic Facility will have to wait a little longer.

Thursday Morning Warren County Fiscal Court granted the pool a 2 week extension.

During that period, officials hope a partner will be signed on to save the pool.

Parks and Recreation Director Chris Kummer is confident a partner will help the pool pay the $178,000 needed to stay open. Swimmers still remain on edge without a solid answer.

"Right now I am 95% sure we've got something solid. The organization we are working with I think they're totally committed," says Kummer.

"There is a high level of anxiety. Is it going to stay open? Is it going to close? I am hopeful that it's going to work out," says swimmer Kristin McGuinness.

Kummer says an official announcement could come in a few days.

The next fiscal court meeting to discuss the pool is March 22.
