Remember why the Lake Worth pool was shut down 5 years ago by CM Susan Stanton, JoAnn Golden, McVoy et al? Too expensive!

Our precious amenity at the BEACH!, the Lake Worth municipal pool, was shut down to save money in 2010. JoAnn Golden was a commissioner in the City then and so was current Commissioner McVoy. Our precious pool wasn't making enough money to stay open.

So revenue is a concern, you see. Or was. The city manager back then was Susan Stanton. She was fired in 2011 and a few months later Michael Bornstein was hired to be the City's city manager. Now, to some in the City, it's not an issue any longer that the pool complex is losing money to the tune of $123,000 last fiscal year. It's now an 'amenity' that must remain open no matter what the burden to the taxpayer:
If we are to conclude (per Golden and McVoy) that the pool is a precious amenity that must remain open at any cost then why did they close it when they were in charge?
