Costs of keeping pool open shared



February 14, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Keeping the Iola Municipal Pool open past Labor Day would be a costly venture, Iola City Council members were told Monday.

Recreation Director Luke Bycroft spelled out why, including the difficulty in finding staff to keep the pool open past the first day of school, and the added cost for pool chemicals.

Bycroft noted that of the 37 full-or part-time employees at the pool in 2011, all but six would be unavailable to work after school started. Ten left for college, and 21 of the remaining 27 would have been unable to work because they were involved with fall sports.
