Has a request been made for proposals from private pool operating companies? How much would be saved by contracting out the operations of all our pools?

I've been to Warwick several times. One cost-cutting suggestion is to not have a lifeguard in the baby pool. And there's usually 2-3 guards on deck, 1 at the desk, and 1 or 2 in the chairs. Seems like a lot of labor.

$2 for unlimited pool use is nothing. At least double it. The soft playroom at Chinquapin is $4 for 30 minutes and demand is never slack.
