WINKLER COUNTY - The pools in Kermit and Wink are now officially closed, just as summer settles in.

Winkler County Commissioners voted on Monday morning to close the pools indefinitely.

The pools are 50 years old and officials are concerned they aren't safe for kids.

A consulting firm has been hired by the county to look into updating or replacing the pools.
