Hi Brett—you'd want to reach out to a City Council member. The president would be a good place to start. All of their contact information is on this page: http://www.brecksville.oh.us/city_hall/council.html Is there an issue you're looking to learn more about?

It is great that the pool will be cheaper for families, but the "Brecksville Puddle" as I have heard it called should not be expensive. It is a wonderful place to hang out with your very young kids, and I thoroughly enjoyed the facility when my guys were little. But I would also like to have a clean, larger outdoor pool to swim in. I have put in my time in the pee pool, and endured the times it had to be cleared due to someone vomiting. It seems we are falling behind in that regard, as many smaller communities now have beautiful water park like facilities for the young, teens and adults. Since I moved to Brecksville in 1994, I have heard grumblings of a new pool. How about an update from The Patch?
