Pools to Close Soon

    A reminder of how short the pool season is in Watertown....This Friday the Flynn Pool on the northside closes followed by the Alteri Pool a week later.
   
 
 
 
         Temperatures this weekend are near 90, so the city's schedule doesn't always match up with Mother Nature.

You are confusing the pool season with the city pool schedule.
People with private pools, open them much sooner and close them much later than the city does with the public pools.

Almost as short as hockey season, huh?

Understand... the City is backwards with their process.. This goes for just about everything, but in this case, lets spend another 2 million we dont have on something we will use less than just about any other service in the city. if we have the extra, add it to the million mansion arena so it can be used year round like it should be. Look at how much money is spent on the hockey teams going elsewhere to use ice. It might amaze you. Like anything else the city does, they dont go to the source and figure out whether something works or doesnt work, and what the long term effects actually are going to be. If you asked the hockey association, they might just have enough need to pay the price.

The city already has a Taxpayer/Private-sector funded Year Round swimming pool.. called the YMCA. Check it out sometime.

232 you should run for council.. thats what they would say.. someone who wants to pay for a building and finance it through their fees and programs... i would make them go elsewhere too. Your crazy response puts you right in the seat on the third floor common sense.
Nice Job.
Maybe you too can get some black rimmed glasses and pretty up your hair..
Good luck.
