While current pool employees want the City of Crestwood to keep its current vendor, Crestwood aldermen voted to reconsider a lower bid at a future meeting. The new contract would save the city approximately $34,000.
Two weeks ago Crestwood aldermen asked staff to prepare a contract with their current aquatic center operator, despite having been outbid by a different management company. Tuesday three of the aldermen who rejected the lower bidder asked to reconsider their decision in an effort to save the city approximately $34,000 over the course of the contract. Dozens of supporters for the pool's current management company, Lifeguards Unlimited, were present at January and February board meetings to ask that the city retain LGU. On Feb. 12 aldermen Jerry Miguel, Daniel Tennessen, John Foote and Mimi Duncan voted against a contract with Midwest Pool Management--despite their not-to-exceed bid coming in $34,100 less than LGU's. LGU supporters argued …

“I do a lot of campaigning for candidates that I think are knowledgeable and willing to do your work so we won’t have to come to the meetings," resident Ruth Wooldridge told the Board of Aldermen.
Tuesday night Crestwood aldermen will review a contract with Lifeguards Unlimited to continue operating the city’s Aquatic Center. Two weeks ago a different aquatic management company, Midwest Pool Management, was ultimately rejected by aldermen, despite submitting a bid that would save the city more than $30,000 over the course of the contract. (Five votes were required to approve the new contract. The board voted 4-3, with Alderman Paul Duchild absent.) Alderman John Foote, who voted against the Midwest Pool Management contract, attributed his decision to support letters from Lifeguards Unlimited employees and customers sent to aldermen. Around 10 students who currently serve as Aquatic Center staff and several other supporters even …

Crestwood Aquatic Center to open May 26, will host a free showing of Jaws May 25.
The Crestwood Park Board had a full agenda last night, open with newly elected Alderman Dan Tennessen giving the aldermanic report. “Parks is one of my favorite subjects when it comes to Crestwood,” Tennessen said. Tennessen’s report started off with Culver’s being approved to be built near Sam’s Club. “That’s really exciting for us; it’s a really good looking restaurant,” he said. “We have that little niche (of space) and that’s some really good retail.” Also in his report was the approval of the request for the $19,500 budget for Kohl’s to be the Aquatic Center’s concessions provider. The Aquatic Center is set to open to the public May 26. A free showing of Jaws will be shown May 25 in the competition pool. Patrons are free to swim or …

After weeks of deliberation, Anytime Fitness’ conditional use permit was denied in a 4-3 vote in Tuesday's meeting.
Tuesday’s Crestwood Board of Aldermen meeting kicked off with a resolution calling for the election of five aldermen on April 3, 2012. The resolution passed unanimously, and candidates may file for an office and have their names printed on the ballot by filing with the city clerk or her designee. Candidates may file beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13 and no later than 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17.

There was a motion on the floor that the non-resident family rate price should be lowered from $400 to $350, and that non-resident Aquatic Center passes will now be able to be purchased anytime throughout the year …
