DOWNEY - A 25-year deal stipulating city use of the swimming pool at Downey High School was approved by the City Council this week.According to the deal, the city of Downey will have exclusive use of the pool during spring break and in the summer when school is not in session. The city will share 25 percent of the annual cost for pool maintenance and supplies, except when each party has exclusive use of the pool, in which case each will be responsible for the entire costs. Last year, the city reimbursed the Downey Unified School District $54,658 for its share of operational costs. The agreement was approved by the Downey school board on June 7.
