Meeting Date: 02/20/2014  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a revised 2014 Pool Schedule;
FISCAL IMPACT:
Minimal impact to the Aquatics Division budget will be realized by starting the regular season on June 7, 2014 as opposed to June 6, 2014.
BACKGROUND:
The Board of Directors approved the 2014 Swimming Pool Operating hours on January 22, 2014. The adopted schedule provided the first day of regular pool season to be Friday, June 6th - the day after most schools completed their term.

Since that time, the area experienced two severe winter weather days which required the Conroe Independent School District (CISD) to close their schools.  To make up the lost days  the primary school district in the community will continue school through June 6th. 

The Township employs approximately 340 lifeguards, of which most  are high school students attending CISD high schools. Therefore, it will be very problematic to open the pools on June 6th during the school year.  In addition, there would be limited use of the pools as school aged children would still be in school. 

Consequently it is recommended to revise the 2014 Pool Schedule to start the regular season on June 7th.
 
The approval of pool operating hours does not require an amendment to Township orders or a public hearing.
The public hearing on January 22nd was required due to a proposed change in rules and adoption of fees and charges.
RECOMMENDATION:
It is recommended to revise the 2014 Pool Schedule to start the regular pool season on June 7th.
