Local swimmers might have to pay a tad more to use Hagerstown's Potterfield Pool this year to help reduce the city's subsidy for the Frederick Street pool.
Under proposed rate increases, students from kindergarten through 12th grade would pay $1.75, an increase of 25 cents over last summer's rates.
Adults would pay $2.25, also a quarter more than last year's $2 rate.
There is no proposed increase in the $1 rate for preschool children.
Pool officials also are proposing charging $1 a day for lounge chair rentals.
While city officials don't expect the pool to become self-sufficient, the rate increases could generate $4,865 more in revenue this year, said Doug Stull, Department of Public Works manager.
