(KMOV) – The City of Belleville is trying to get their public pool fixed before the state forces them to shut it down. 

This year the state of Illinois is mandating cities to upgrade the drains in public pools and meet other requirements for 2012. 

Belleville’s pool doesn't make the cut according to officials, who estimate the cost of repairs  around $60,000.

Mayor Eckert says in the future he'd like to see the city have a partnership with a private firm to operate a city pool.
