By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — Rates at the Vergennes city pool will not increase this summer, the Vergennes City Council decided on Tuesday.

Day passes for adults 18 and older will remain at $3, for youths 6 to 17 at $2, and children under the age of 6 may use the pool for free.

Rates for swimming just between noon to 1 p.m. or after 5 p.m. will stay at $2.

A season pass for city residents will still cost $50, and a family pass will go for $100. The corresponding cost for non-residents stays at $65 for an individual or $130 for a family.
