“We’re trying to decide how much of the pool we can keep open, if any,” said Executive Director Phil White. “We’re looking to see whether we can get some help with operating costs to keep the therapy pool open. Until we have some solid support for that, we have to assume we’re not going to heat the pools for a while.”
