Lubbock City Council Votes to Keep Pools Open

Cole Shooter, KFYO.com

At their meeting Thursday morning, the Lubbock City Council decided to keep all municipal pools open this summer, despite water restrictions.

Mae Simmons and Clapp pools are both filled with water pulled from the municipal water supply, while Maxey and Montelongo pools are filled with well water.

Under the Stage 2 water restrictions scheduled to go into effect on April 1st, all pools not being filled with well water must be filled prior to the restriction date or remain empty.

$9,000 has been allocated by the council out of the general reserve fund for early filling and chemical costs associated with the extra time which the pools will be filled. Normally, the pools are filled a week before they open in late May.

The Council approved the measure unanimously.
