And District 5 Councilor Darrell O’Quinn said he’ll cover the cost of any resident who would like to enjoy a cool dip in the pool at Crestwood, 5400 Crestwood Blvd.

“Simply stated, the pool will offer a healthy and safe outlet for kids during the hot days of summer. It’s a great investment as I see it, and I’m happy to support this recreation program by making it free to enjoy the pool at Crestwood,” said Councilor Darrell O’Quinn.
