WALBRIDGE - A delayed opening and a wet, cool summer sunk village pool profits for the year.
A report included in council's packet for Wednesday's meeting said Aqua Terrace received $14,629 less than it did in 2012.
Last year, the pool had $23,141 in receipts; in 2013 it was $8,512.
But the mayor and council's chairwoman of the parks, recreation and community events committee were not discouraged.
"Considering it was closed for part of the summer, I'm not," said Councilwoman Sue Hart-Douglas. "I think next year it's going to be even better."
The pool didn't open until late June due to a new liner installation. Hart-Douglas is excited about new additions for next year, including a slide and possibly a sand volleyball area.
Mayor Ed Kolanko said June is usually the busiest month of the pool season, so a lot of business was lost. He also noted the cool, wet weather that settled in the area for most of the summer.
In 2012, admissions totaled $1,772 and concessions were $618 for $2,390 total. This year, admissions were $1,118 and concessions $438 for a total of $1,556.
In June last year, total receipts for Aqua Terrace were $9,863, compared to $100 in 2013. In July 2012, receipts were $8,005; in 2013 they were $6,555. August of 2012 netted $2,390; this August was $1,556.
Also at the meeting, council went into a 10-minute executive session to discuss pending litigation. No action was taken.
