The Verona Town Council voted Monday night to approve rates for the Verona Pool for this summer and to affirm that the pool will once again open on Memorial Day.
The 2021 pool rates are about a 2% increase from 2019; rates were lowered last summer because the pool season was shortened by the pandemic.
For 2021, Family memberships will be $485, while Family with Babysitter will be $590. The Couples badge will be $450, Parent/Child will be $425 and an individual membership will be $320. The cost of Senior Citizen membership will be unchanged at $165 per person.
The pool will be open on weekends only as of Memorial Day; the full season begins after school ends in June. Pool hours are Monday through Thursday from noon to 8 p.m., and Friday from noon to 9 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the pool is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., with an adults-only hour from 10 to 11 a.m. both days. Verona is not offering an evenings-only membership this year.

Verona has an Olympic-size community pool, which was built after Verona resident Jed Graef won the gold medal for the 200-meter backstroke at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics).
