Pool Passes Available For White Salmon Residents
The White Salmon City Council has approved spending up to $20,000 on passes for White Salmon residents to use the Hood River Aquatic Center. The town will not have its own swimming pool this summer, or in the near future, after the decision was made that it was no longer feasible to keep the aging pool in Rheingarten Park open while continued consideration of building a new pool took place. Mayor David Poucher says White Salmon residents can come in to City Hall to receive passes. The money comes from the budget the City had in place to operate the old pool in 2019. Poucher noted the City is still retaining $37,000 of that budget in case there are additional expenses as a result of the pool closure.
