There's no word yet from the town's insurance adjusters regarding the collapsed Cheshire Community Pool bubble, and until its report is submitted, the town's hands are tied, according to Town Manager Michael Milone.
"We can't touch it until we get that report back," he said. "Until then it will sit as it is."
Despite best efforts to keep it up, the bubble collapsed during the recent blizzard that dropped more than three feet of snow in the area, similar to what happened two years ago when the region was the target of several snowstorms that led to a buildup of snow on the bubble.

Milone said that the insurance coverage will pay to replace the bubble as it did in 2011. But some town residents say that it's time to build a permanent structure at the pool in order to avoid future occurrences.
The pool is heavily used, both by the public and the Cheshire High School swim team and the Cheshire YMCA. It's likely it won't reopen until late spring this year because of the collapse.
