Budget impacts result in one day per week Maui pool closuresJune 29, 2010, 12:49 PM HST · Updated June 29, 1:23 PM 0 Comments
Budget impacts have resulted in additional pool closure days on Maui. The County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation announced today that beginning July 1, 2010, all County swimming pools will close one day per week in efforts to meet a loss in funding and personnel for Fiscal Year 2011, which runs July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011.
Additionally, except for pre-scheduled County pool programs, Kahului Pool (Old Salvation Army) and Old Wailuku Pool will be closed daily.
County officials say the weekly pool closures, along with the previously announced closures on all County-observe holidays, are being implemented to uphold public safety while generating cost savings through janitorial services, repairs and maintenance at pool facilities.
County pools will close one day per week as follows, except during weeks containing a holiday, when they will close on the holiday instead.
Sakamoto Pool: Monday
New Wailuku Pool: Thursday
Kokua Pool: Tuesday
Upcountry Pool Complex: Tuesday
Kihei Aquatic Center: Wednesday
Lahaina Aquatic Center: Thursday
The public is advised to call the Maui County Pools information line at 270-8208; the recorded message is updated by 9 a.m. daily.
