Swimming pool made a profit despite weather

The Westminster community swimming pool ended last summer in the black despite a cold, rainy summer that left few days for swimming.

"It wasn't a great year, but we made money," City Recreation Director Carol Donovan reported.

The pool took in $41,495 during the three-month season, and had estimated expenses of $36,000. Mrs. Donovan said a few expenses remain outstanding, but she believes the pool will end the year with a profit.
