Glendale aims to crack down on swim pass cheaters

Abuse of the discounted family swim pass at the newly-opened Pacific Community Pool last summer — which cost the city $5,600 in lost revenue — has prompted calls to end the program.

The Parks, Recreation & Community Services Commission this week recommended axing the $50-pass, which may be replaced with individual unlimited passes.

Some swimmers with the family pass, meant for immediate family members, would bring in friends and cousins to take advantage of the pass, Community Services Supervisor Gabrielle Goglia said at the meeting, resulting in the lost revenue.

Under the new recommendation, a family of four with two adults and two children under 12 will have to pay $190 for unlimited access. A child under 12 would pay $20; children between 12 and 17 would pay $40; adults would pay $75 and seniors over 55 would pay $40.

The City Council must still sign off on the new fee schedule.
