non residents after hours at the pool
by connie on June 7th, 2015

Tonight there were more than 20 non residents (children and adults) in the pool during the resident only swim time. On Saturday night there were about the same number with some people smoking cigarettes in the pool area. Again this year my concern is that many of the people who come in after hours that are clearly non residents are not good swimmers and their children are being supervised by adults that could probably not save themselves or the children that they are there to supervise. Personally I like to go to the pool in the evening after the crowds are gone to relax and enjoy swimming laps. It is hard to do when there are so many people there that are not neighbors, not in agreement about following the rules, and many not safe to be there without supervision. Once you have let one person in, they then will let all of their family and friends in too. Any ideas about how to handle this? Thanks

I also live across the street from the pool and understand the concerns people have about how I came to the conclusion about resident vs non resident. For the last week we have been watching in the evenings to see if any of the people that we suspect are non residents leave with a pool pass with them and I have not seen one person that seems to have one. Now, I guess they could all be people that keep theirs hidden well unlike most of the residents I see there with their keys. Also, my housemate has been observing how people are getting in for the last few weeks and sees an increase of the number of people waiting in the park outside the gate for the lifeguards to leave and then one person or two either walks in with a resident or they ask to be let in. It is uncomfortable to say no, feels bad. But, once one person gets in then they let in their freinds and family. As a business owner I am very aware of liability issues and would hate to see the evening swim ruined for all of us because of this. Either we need to pay to have the life guards there until 10 and we would be the ones paying for that or the resident only rule needs to be infourced. I can guarantee there will one really sad 10 year old fish named Lauren as well as her grandparents who will be very upset to lose our evening swim time! Connie

Build a big ole wall around Mueller to keep the riffraff out. Curious to know what a "nonresident" looks like that makes them so easy for you to spot. I think I have an idea.

I am with you on this, Connie. This is a problem! And instead of making this a racial issue, can we just agree that EVERYONE should be following the rules?

Hey, Christina: if I walk into the pool after hours, how will you or the watchdogs know I am a resident?

Must everything denigrate to an implied issue of race? My wife recently saw four middle school age kids (I know this because one of them recognized her from the middle school where she works) trying to jump the fence to get into the pool after it was closed for public swim. Clearly they are "non-residents" or they would have had a pool key to open the gate. She said something to them, but who knows what they did once she was out of sight (I think I have an idea). There were others in the pool area, but obviously no one they knew who would let them in. I agree that non-residents at the pool after hours is an issue. In my opinion, enforcement of this rule should not be primarily left up to residents.

That is fairly straightforward. If you "walk into the pool after hours" you must have a pool key, which are only available to residents.

What is interesting to me about all of this IS that something as simple as rules for the pool becomes a political and racial, class issue so quickly. I don't get it and I hope I never do. Most of my grandchildren are African American so go figure. Connie
