A new contract to operate Peachtree City’s five pools will result in a savings of $7,000 from the previous year, officials said at Thursday night’s city council meeting.
The contract will again go to USA Pools, which was deemed the most qualified company that submitted a proposal. The $249,000 contract was approved unanimously by council.
As part of the contract, USA Pools operates and staffs the city’s pools. USA Pools has had the contract with the city since 1998.
Leisure Services Director Randy Gaddo said five other proposals were reviewed, but USA Pools was determined to be the most capable company of performing the work the city requires.
USA Pools also had the lowest price among the companies, and price was weighed as 50 percent of the consideration in selecting a company to perform the work, officials said.
In a memo to council members in advance of the meeting, Gaddo noted that none of the other companies making proposals had experience in managing a full-service operation including lifeguards, water quality management, general maintenance, lessons and programs.
