Pool having a huge year

Fiscally speaking, swimming pools tend not to be considered “a money maker” for city governments; rather they serve the public quality of life.
Nevertheless, the amount of patrons at the pool has been up — “way up,” said Tara Hackman, recreation coordinator with the New Hampton Parks Department.
