PATRONS OF CITY’S OUTDOOR POOLS ADVISED
TO USE CASH FOR ADMISSION, CONCESSIONS
City Experiencing Connectivity Issues
With Credit Card Machines
RAPID CITY, SD—Patrons wishing to use the City’s outdoor pools are advised to use cash when paying for the daily admission fee and concessions. Officials with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department indicate they are working to resolve problems with the credit card machines at the outdoor pools.
The issue affects the three City outdoor pools at Parkview, Horace Mann and the Jimmy Hilton Pool at Sioux Park, which are set to open Friday (tomorrow) beginning at noon. City officials indicate the pools will open as scheduled but payment options are limited to cash until the issues with the credit card machines are rectified. The cash-only option is in effect until further notice.
“We are attempting to work with the credit card company to resolve connectivity issues we are experiencing,” said Barb Iwan, the City’s Aquatic and Exercise Program specialist. “Until the issues are resolved, we are asking patrons to use cash for admission and concessions.”
There are no ATMs at the pools and without the credit card machines, cash is the only payment option, Iwan said.
