LR extends swim season

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 9:31 AM

This was scheduled for the Insider column in this week's edition, but news waits for no printers these days.

Mayor Mark Stodola will announce today that the city will keep the War Memorial Pool open until Aug. 14, thanks to private commitments of money. The pool was scheduled to close Aug. 1. The Southwest Little Rock Pool will be extended by one week, to Aug. 7.

Because of the tight 2010 city budget, the pools were originally scheduled to close in mid-July. The city began to have second thoughts once the cuts became generally known. Some city directors had not known that the budget the board approved in December had included the shortened pool schedule — and in a brutally hot summer.
