Tri-Valley temperatures to possibly top 100 degrees

The city of Pleasanton cut its pool feels to $1 again today as Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley endure temperatures in the high 90s and even the low 100s by this afternoon.

Joanne Hall, the city's public information offifcer, said the reduced fee for recreational swim at the Dolores Bengston Aquatic Center, 4455 Black Ave. is available from 1 to 5 p.m. for Pleasanton residents arriving at the pool during those times. Swimmers will be asked to show proof of residency to qualify for the lower rate.

It is silly to open the pool from 1 to 5 - the time when people should not be in the sun! Why not stay open until 8 pm?

The aquatic center has hours that don't make sense. Why? Is this because they cannot get people to work past 5? If it is due to budget, they should consider opening at 4 and closing at 8 instead, to avoid the worse sun of the day (1-3:30)

It's 8:43pm and I'm still in the pool. Your right resident! I'm laying on my air mattress with laptop looking up at the stars writing this blog. How could the City not of thought of your reasonable request? Oh no, have got to go,person is jumping the fence. Must collect their $1.00 before any skinny dipping allowed. Hello, are you the Resident? You are? No peeing in the pool!
