Garfield Pool could be open for summer 

The Garfield Pool in the Mission neighborhood has been shut down for repairs since what was supposed to be a routine, two-week pool cleaning in October and is finally scheduled to reopen in July for a bloated $267,000 tab.

The Recreation and Park Department’s staff initially predicted it would cost them about $75,000 and until April to fix the sealant and pump they found problems with last year, but have come back to commissioners for more money and time.

This was after Supervisor David Campos asked what the hold-up was after receiving complaints from neighbors.

Apparently staff needed to fix the scaffolding and lights, and several other pleasant surprises, too.

Rec and Park spokesman Elton Pon did not have a specific date set, but it did sound like the department plans to make a big deal out of the pool’s 2010 debut.
