Council members roll up their sleeves
Tuesday, October 22, 2019 by Tai Moses
Politicians like to remind the public that they are real people. One of their favorite ways of doing this is by rolling up their sleeves and doing some dirty work. Thus was hatched the event, “City Council Cleans the Pool Day,” which takes place at Barton Springs Pool and features Mayor Steve Adler and Council members Ann Kitchen, Leslie Pool and Alison Alter doing some spit-and-polishing of the pool. The event, held by Friends of Barton Springs Pool and the Barton Springs Conservancy, includes a tour of the pool and historic bathhouse, and shows off the Upper Dam and some new tree plantings and aquatic plants. The mayor will discuss the Land Development Code changes regarding improved water quality for Barton Springs and other watersheds. The Council members will deliver some remarks on the use of Hotel Occupancy Tax funds for the bathhouse. 9 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 24,Barton Springs Pool, 2131 William Barton Dr.
