BASSANO OUTDOOR POOL UPDATE

For immediate release
March 30, 2021

Over the past few months council has assessed the Town’s capacity to operate the outdoor pool this season and to plan around:

  1. Managing ongoing changes to provincial restrictions
  2. Appropriate level of staffing and training
  3. Financial
  4. Maintain an environment that is safe and fun for users

Council recognizes the social, mental, physical, and community benefit of the outdoor pool plus, the many hours that have been spent by the community to fundraise, build, and enjoy the facility. Unfortunately, long-term planning is simply not feasible at this time and council cannot guarantee the outdoor pool will open. Risk can, however, be managed.

With that, council commits:

  • To aim to operate the outdoor pool between July 1 and August 30, 2021. A final decision will be made at the May 10, 2021 council meeting.
  • To begin hiring qualified summer staff to operate the outdoor pool immediately. If the outdoor pool is unable to open this season all summer staff will remain employed by the Town and will be divided into small operational teams to support the public works department with various community tasks that may otherwise never be accomplished.

We are eager to bring joy, laughter, and learning back this summer at the outdoor pool if it is safe to do so. We are committed to the development of our youth and wish to provide them with opportunities to support their skill development. 

An announcement will be made after the May 10, 2021 meeting to confirm if the outdoor pool will open this season. Thank you for hanging in there with us.

Sincerely,

Ron Wickson
Mayor
