Budget Cuts Close Sacramento Day Camps, Park Restrooms

Cousins Aaron Turner (cq; left) and Brandon Hunter (cq; right), both 12 years old, show their youthful agility as they enjoy the hot day at the City of Sacramento's Clunie Pool, in McKinley Park Sacramento 23 August 1999. They were there with many other kids, celebrating the rapidly-dwindling days of summer, with school about to begin.Maintenance at Sacramento city parks will be reduced, park restrooms will be shuttered at nearly every park, and 13 day camps run by the city will close beginning next week -- part of the city's massive budget cuts. The cuts take effect July 6. Recreational swimming will stop at five city pools, while open swim at other pools will be closed one day a week, a city press release issued today states. City officials said most of the cuts would have been avoided if negotiators and union representatives had been able to agree on cash-saving salary concessions.
