After much consideration and reviewing attendance figures from last year, the City of Prattville announces that Pratt Pool will be open on Saturdays this summer beginning June 11, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

By rescheduling lifeguards, the City of Prattville was able to make the limited seasonal budget go a bit further.

“I pulled together a citizen committee to address the issues with opening Pratt Pool this summer. Even though we’ve found a way to fund lifeguards’ salaries one day a week, this committee will continue to meet. The goal of the committee is to find creative funding that meets with Council approval,” stated Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. “We will keep the public apprised of our progress as we work on this project.”

The City Council and Mayor Gillespie will be discussing the fees for open swim in the next few days. One of the upcoming topics about the pool will be 2012 ADA compliancy, which at this time will require the expenditure of funds to bring us up to the new code.
