Earlier today, it was announced that Moore Park Pool in Brookline will require repairs to its electrical service before opening for the summer. You can see the full release here.
While it is clear that these repairs are necessary to protect the safety of the many families who use the pool, we are dismayed that the problem was not uncovered sooner, and that repairs were not made in the off-season.
Councilwoman Rudiak and Citiparks have secured shuttles that will provide transportation for Brookline residents to the nearby Banksville pool during the closure. The shuttle will run on the following schedule:
Shuttles Tuesdays and Thursdays
Our office will push hard to ensure that the repairs are completed and the pool is opened as quickly as possible. We have also been assured that moving forward, inspections of pools will be completed and repairs will be made well in advance of summer pool season, when possible. We firmly believe that the City should maintain City assets and infrastructure proactively, and not wait for emergencies. Planning ahead is both financially prudent and the best way to ensure seamless service and recreational opportunities for our residents.
