good neighbor

what is the pool maintenance issue?


Speaking as an old Bearcat, I suspect the lower transfer enrollment for San Mateo High might have something to do with the rebuilding of the Performing Arts Center, leaving the dance and drama depts. to have classes and performances elsewhere- that department has always been a huge draw.

Pool maintenance issue ???? The District has 5 other pools with no problems , the problem @ BHS is the Burlingame Aquatic Clubs involvement . The BAC needs to be given the boot and the "Pool maintenance issue" will go away trust me.

good neighbor

the Burlingame Aquatics Club has really brought the swim pool down.

First, they jacked all the prices up... then they got rid of all the previous instructors and hired some really bad ones. Every week it my childs teacher changes and it is had for my child to get confortable as there the teachers are always changing or rotating.

also there is lots of derbis leavs etc in the pool, and the biggest problem is the pool temp, very cold

turn the pool back over to teh park and rec department of Burlingame City!


You guys sound like you know more about it than I do, but I do know that the Dec 3, 2012 Council meeting minutes say:

Dave Summa, Director of the Burlingame Aquatic Center (BAC) gave a presentation on the operation of the Club’s public-private partnership with the City. He also reviewed the programs that are available and the additional programs that have been added. He also expressed his gratitude to the City staff and the excellent working relationship he has with them.
Vice Mayor Brownrigg advised that he has had the pleasure to work with the Burlingame Aquatic Club on a somewhat regular basis and complimented their excellent customer service.
P&RD Glomstad reviewed the staff report and requested an extension of the current agreement for six additional months.
Vice Mayor Brownrigg made a motion to approve the report and revised budget and he addressed a comment made by John Root during public comments concerning the boiler issue. Vice Mayor Brownrigg advised that the BAC is only responsible for the day-to-day operations, not the big-ticket items. (This item was discussed further as part of 9c). Councilman Deal seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously 5-0.
