ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – The Odessa City Council is looking ahead to warmer weather and is considering opening city pools for the summer.

Pools were closed last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Steve Patton, director of Parks and Recreation, said pools would open up at 75% capacity and social distancing would be enforced.

Mayor Javier Joven said he hopes COVID-19 numbers will be lower by the spring so families can enjoy the pools and spray grounds this year.

“I’m just hoping we can get back to some normalcy,” Joven said at Tuesday’s meeting.

Council members will consider the request to open and hope to make a decision by the first of February.
