Dimitrijevic to hold listening session at Pulaski Pool
Neighborhood listening session will combine with “dollar days” event
Milwaukee County Board Chairwoman Marina Dimitrijevic will hold an informal listening session at a “dollar days” event at Pulaski Indoor Pool, 2701 S. 16th St., on Sunday, March 22, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
“Bring your friends and family for a dollar days swim,” Dimitrijevic said. “I’ll be there to welcome you and listen to your concerns about our neighborhood. Come check out this great resource in our neighborhood.”
County Executives have proposed closing pools, and Dimitrijevic has led successful efforts to restore funding to keep the Pulaski and Noyes Park pools open. In 2013, Stan Kass also donated $100,000 toward the pools remaining open.
“Pulaski indoor pool is an invaluable resource in our community,” Dimitrijevic said. “That’s why I fought so hard to keep it open. It is a great place for recreation, especially during the long winter months. But it’s not enough just to keep the doors open. It is our responsibility to let the community know that the pools are open and that everyone is welcome.
“I look forward to hearing from pool users and residents of my district at Pulaski indoor pool on March 22.”
