Belle Haven pool adds hours for water polo

 

Although his contract with Menlo Park required operating the city's Belle Haven pool for only three months a year, Tim Sheeper of Menlo Swim and Sport will open the facility six days a week starting this month for water polo season, according to city staff.

His organization has been operating the pool on Saturdays from September through October by offering swim lessons as well as renting the pool to a local water polo organization. Due to limited space at Burgess Pool, Menlo Swim and Sport plans to provide practice space at Belle Haven from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and continue with swim lessons and rentals on Saturdays, staff said.

Tim Sheeper is a genuine innovator and a real asset. Let this serve as more evidence that the community should support him.

He has been maligned by competitors and burdened with unecessary restrictions during his last two contract negotiations.

When it is reviewed again in 2016 please remember this and other actions that are such a benefit to the community.
