New Port Richey considers pool discount for county employees

NEW PORT RICHEY — The city is considering offering a discount to Pasco County employees for use of its Recreation & Aquatic Center.

The county wants to encourage its employees to engage in a healthier lifestyle, so New Port Richey officials are weighing a proposal to offer county workers the same rate that city residents receive, according to a report issued to the City Council by Parks and Recreation Manager Elaine Smith.

It could mean big savings for county employees as the city is also in the midst of a summer promotional drive to offer discounts to all customers.

Currently, the city is offering a 20 percent discount for a three-month membership. The rates are as follows until June 8:

Youth: $49.60, $40 for city residents.

Senior: $75.20, $60 for city residents.

Adult: $100, $80 for city residents.

Family: $153.60, $132 for city residents.
