Spring has just started, but before too long it will be Summer and the city's pools will be jammed packed with kids and people just wanting to cool off from the heat. Before you dive in, the city has a few new changes that they want to tell us about. Jean Pearson is the city's Recreation Programs director. She stopped by the KSFY Morning News to talk to Shawn about the new changes. The city has decided to forgo the patches and swim badges for new electronic key fobs that allow swimmers to swipe and swim.
People can buy the pool passes at any of the city's community centers. Because the new computer equipment needs to be in a climate-controlled environment, you will no longer be able to purchase swim passes at any of the pools. The new system will be able to track who is coming to the pools, where they are coming from and provide the city with more information about patrons. Pools are tentatively set to open on Friday, May 24th.
