TUCSON, Ariz. -- It's looking like more Tucson pools could be open this summer.

Only 10 of the city's 27 public pools were open last summer because of budget trouble.  The city council is thinking about raising money from outside sources, sponsoring pool openings.

Right now they have enough money to open four of the 17 closed pools.

Needing another $228,000 to open the rest.

The campaign will be called bring back the splash, if the council approves the move.
