Aquatic Center Hours Considered

Fewer hours, or one less day a week? That’s the tough question facing Kirksville leaders considering how to get the aquatic center back within budget. It was a topic at this week’s council study session. One option is for the center to be closed on Mondays; the other is for the center to open every day at 1p.m. instead of noon. Assistant City Manager Melanie Smith says they hope whatever they decide won’t affect attendance. Monday is the slowest day. They’d rather not raise prices, because that would likely impact attendance.
