I would like to know why the prices at Karl Knox Natatorium for swimming went up so much; in particular why the senior citizens' went from $1 to $2.50, a 150 percent increase?

"When the Parks and Recreation Department prepared the budget for 2001, a swimming pool fee increase was recommended," Fred DeVictor, city parks director, said. "Fees had not been increased since 1995.

"Beginning this summer swimmers will have a choice of three different swimming facilities, including the state-of-the-art indoor aquatic center at 4706 Overland Drive. Ticket booklets are available, saving 20 percent off the price cited in the question, and season passes will provide even more savings from the daily fees."
