If you don’t live in Mascoutah, you’ll be paying more to use the public pool this summer

The Mascoutah City Council passed an ordinance Monday increasing the fees nonresidents will have to pay for public pool passes.

The daily rate — $5 for residents and $8 for nonresidents — has not changed.

But the costs of family and individual passes are increasing by $50 each. Individual passes will now be $170 per person, up from $120. For a family of five, a pass will cost $350, up from $300.

The rate after 4 p.m. for nonresidents has also increased, from $4 to $5. The cost for residents after 4 p.m. is still $3.

The cost for a two-week swim class has increased from $90 to $100 for nonresidents. The same class costs $70 for residents.

In addition, children ages 2 and under can use the pool for free. That age has been lowered from 3 and under.
