Dedicated Hutchins Street Square pool users told the Lodi Recreation Commission on Tuesday that they were fine with a proposed rate hike if it will save classes people depend on.

The city has struggled for years with the pool's deficit. For the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, the Hutchins pool cost $210,000, but only had $65,000 in revenue, resulting in a loss of $145,000, said Jeff Hood, interim Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services director.

    Ahhhh, projections!

    Mr. Hood estimates a $30K to $35K increase in revenues. Hmmm, let's do the math. Assuming the pool is only open 50 weeks the year (they close during the holidays some) and a pool user does go 5 days a week, that's 250 days of use. With the $1 increase per person that works out to 120 average swimmers per day ($30K, 250 days). Personally, that sounds like alot of people. I've swam at HSS on & off over the years at all times of day. I'm skeptical, but I'm sure they have the stats to back it up.

    I recently joined Twin Arbors, mainly for the swimming access, but also for other classes. At the nw proposed prices a membership at this private club is just about the same as using the pool at HSS. And you can use the pool late nights, weekends, and enjoy the many other offerings at the club for about the same price per month.
