Tucson council votes to move forward with pool sponsorships

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The council is trying to open up closed pools this summer.

Wednesday it voted unanimously to move forward with a campaign to raise money from businesses, churches, individuals and nonprofits who can sponsor pool openings.

If you want to help, be sure to do so as soon as possible.

The Parks and Rec Department needs to know how many pools they could be opening, so enough lifeguards are trained to staff those pools.
