Brady pool now open Tues.-Sun.

The Brady Municipal Swimming Pool officially opened on Wednesday for the 2001 summer break. This year, the facility will be managed by Brady Middle School coach Jeff Hurta. Assisting this year as life guards are Jodi Doyal, Frank Corder, Hunter Wilkinson, Kristin Klein, Allison Allen and Beth Reinisch. Pool hours are from 1-6 p.m., Tuesdays through Sundays (closed on Mondays). Family nights will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. Senior citizens nights are scheduled for Wednesdays from 7-9 p.m. To book the facility for a special occasion, contact Hurta at the pool at 597-4022. All nightly parties must be attended by a certified lifeguard. Parties will be booked on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7-9 p.m. “Most Fridays and Saturdays are already booked for the summer,” said Hurta, “so those who want to reserve the pool need to call pretty quickly. “Our first day open (Wednesday) was really busy. Some people had to wait 30 or 45 minutes to get in. I apologize for the wait, but the first week is usually pretty hectic. The wait will die down as we get further into the summer,” he explained. “If kids are under the age of 12 they need to have an adult supervisor with them at the pool. A lot of times that’s not the case, but we hope parents will abide by it this year,” he said. Due to a recent change in rules and licensing, the City will not be offering swimming lessons at the pool this year. According to City officials, new laws requiring advanced certifications are now required and the City does not yet have the necessary qualifications.
