Message from Mike Wright, Director
Medina Community Recreation Center and Memorial Pool
The Municipal pool’s annual budget is based on the revenues estimated to be collected through memberships, day pass sales, and concessions. This is an Enterprise Fund which dictates that revenues cover expenses. It has come very close to covering all of its own expenses the past three years, only failing to do so because of costly unforeseen repairs. This year the COVID restrictions have shortened the season and enforced very limited customer capacity restrictions, which means much less revenue. As a result, the pool would not be able to cover its own operating expenses for 2020. It costs approximately $1,000 a day for the pool to be operational.
The original capacity restrictions in May would have limited us to around fifty patrons at a time, which would leave a daily shortfall of at least $400 per day. Depending on weather and attendance, this would result in a $20,000 to $40,000 deficit. That is a substantial loss for the city to incur just to reach fifty community members a day. In June, the Governor released new waterpark regulations with a revised capacity formula that allowed for around 125 patrons. This would almost be sufficient to generate the revenues needed to operate the pool if it were to run at maximum capacity, the sun always shone, there were no weather closures all season long, and no repairs needed.
The reason the community organizations are asking for donations to reopen the city pool is because they want to help us ensure we can pay for the pool’s expenses and still maintain the necessary social distancing guidelines and capacity restrictions needed to keep the community safe. Those of us who have made recreation our careers, obviously want to provide fun and entertainment to as many people as we can, but we must do that safely and with financial responsibility.
