Free swimming in Cache Creek

Cache Creek waives its fees at the public swimming pool.

There will be no charge for public swimming in Cache Creek this year.

Mayor John Ranta said the Village decided to waive the $2.25 fee for a year and “see how it goes.”

He said Council recognized that there were both children and adults in the community who couldn’t afford the fee, and it didn’t seem fair that some people could afford it while others couldn’t.

“By doing this, we’re helping the fiscally challenged and offering another opportunity for  physical fitness,” he said.

Revenues from the swimming pool amount to approximately $5,000 per year.
