The city subsidized the Tippecanoe Family Aquatic Center’s operation this year with $92,077 from the general fund.
City Manager Jon Crusey’s report on the center, which opened in 2005, came as no surprise to City Council. It heard about the affect of wet, cooler weather on pool use in update reports throughout the summer.
The weather was “very uncooperative,” Crusey said. That meant the center was closed 16 days total when full and partial days of operation were combined.
Attendance of 27,939 was the lowest since the center opened. The city contracts with Dayton Pool Management to operate the facility, including the hiring of lifeguards. NANCY BOWMAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
