Did you know that the city pools, with the exception of Hartke and Lloyd Pools, are closed until next year?  Denise Johnson, Parks and Recreation Director, stated that with attendance dipping because of students returning to school, keeping multiple pools open is too costly.  However, schools haven't even begun before the pools are closed.

It's a popular belief that, even with declining attendance, kids need the option of using the pools for an enjoyable activity, at least until school begins.  What do you think?  Please answer the poll below:
