MANSFIELD -- Mansfield City Council is expected to vote Tuesday night on a contract paying the Mansfield Area Y $41,280 to again operate the city-owned swimming pool at Liberty Park.

The Mansfield Area Y will furnish lifeguard services, supervisors, deck operation and all routine mechanical operations for the pool on the city's east side.

The city is responsible for any needed major mechanical repairs and will replace equipment as needed, i.e. pump failure and filter failure.

The contract period is from May 22 through Aug. 9. The pool will be open seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m., depending upon the weather.

Children 3 years old and younger will be admitted free. Admission for children between 4 and 12 will be $1. Admission for teens and adults will be $2.
