"The decision to reopen the pool was taken at the last council. This after the City Council has received several complaints from swimmers. But the decision to open or not this popular sports infrastructure does not depend on us, but the central authorities. Last year also, the pool opening was delayed due to lack of water, "the adviser responds.

"We have nearly 300 members at the municipality. Admission is according to detailed criteria, "says the counselor. "A parent whose child attends this nautical infrastructure does not seem to agree.
