Atlantic Parks & Rec Board lowers Sunnyside Pool rates


June 7th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

You won’t be paying as much as you thought for use of the public swimming pool, in Atlantic. The City’s Park and Recreation Board voted Monday, to lower the previously announced rates, and return the checks of anyone who bought a seasonal pass for the Sunnyside Pool, at the higher rate.
The action came during a special meeting of the board, and was in response to rates set at their last regular meeting. Those rates were based on incorrect information they had about last year’s rates at the pool. Under the previously approved 2011 schedule, a family pass increased from $75 to $160, the single pass went from $50 to $90, and the daily pass went from two-to four-dollars.

But with the correct information in-hand at yesterday’s meeting, the board voted unanimously to reset this year’s seasonal rates to $105 for a family pass, $70 for an individual pass, and to set the daily use rate, at four-dollars.  And, as to further clarify how the seasonal passes can be used, the board said only immediate family members will be included on a family pass.

If you’ve already paid for your summer pass, and at the previously announced higher rate, you will receive your original check back, and be asked to write a new check, for the correct rate.
