Pool does well despite weather

Hartselle Aquatic Center is closing in on a banner year as its second season draws to a close.

The pool is scheduled to remain open through Sun., Sept. 1.

Lots of cloudy days, record-breaking rainfall in July and moderate temperatures had little effect on the pool’s ability to draw customers and generate revenue in 2013, it’s second full year of operation.

“It’s been a good summer,” said Lacey Garnett, pool manager. “I think it has done just as well if not better than last year. We sold 2,500 season passes as compared to about 1,700 in 2012. “We had a good staff, the equipment functioned well and we had no major incidents.

“A number of people who used the center for the first time complimented the city on the nice facilities it provides and said they will come back,” Garnett pointed out. “Positive feedback always makes us feel good about the job we’re doing.”

Garnett said the shutdown would require several days of work.

“I’ll be busy storing equipment, doing cleanup and making sure everything is ready to go next year,” she said.

SNAP’s Splash Pad will continue to operate as long as the weather stays warm.
