Remember, all membership passes now include a key tag instead of a photo ID. These key tags are "forever" passes, meaning they are not re-issued each year. Please keep your key tag from season to season to avoid having to pay a replacement fee ($1). All new members are required to take a photo. Existing members can use their previous photo and will be asked to update as needed. Everyone with a pass must have a photo on file to gain entrance to the pool. Photos can be taken at City Hall or at the pool admissions counter.
