The Memorial and East End Pools serve their respective neighborhoods. I find it hard to believe that it will cost an estimated $1.3 million dollars to repair East End and Memorial Pools. The city has a Parks and Recreation Department. I suspect that the cost would be far less if the city did its own work and did not contract it out whether it is for paving streets or repairing pools. Grant money is still tax payer money as is the money paid to contractors to do the repairs.
