City pools open on Monday, June 14, and for the first time children will have to pay $1 to swim in the pools. The Spokane Parks Foundation has raised $9,000 for sponsored swim passes. These passes will be available in packages of 15 single-use passes, so there are 600 packages available on a first come first serve basis starting Monday.

Applications can be downloaded from www.spokaneparks.org/aquatics

Starting Monday, applications may be picked up at the first floor information desk at City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Boulevard or at any of the six pools. Applicants must provide two forms of income verification - the minimum income levels are outlined on the application. For example, a family of four can not make more than $28,665 a year (that's 130% of the Federal Poverty Level)
