        MONTGOMERY — The city has decided to get wet and wild this year with a new series of events at the city's swimming pool complex on Hopewell Road just east of Montgomery Road.

        “This is the first time in at least three years that we will have evening events,” said Assistant City Manager Kate Earley.

        Council discontinued evening events after hearing neighbor complaints that lighting around the pool area was shining into their homes.

Comments sought
        “We have redirected the lights, turned some around and then invited the residents to come out to give feedback to the entire city council and recreation commission,” Mrs. Earley said.

        There were no complaints about the new lighting arrangement, she said.

        “We want to encourage community events and these evenings will call attention to our pool and encourage residents and people who work in Montgomery to join,” Mrs. Earleysaid.

        While the evening events are open to the public, only residents and employees of Montgomery businesses may join the pool, she said.

        There is plenty of room for new members. There are about 700 pool members now.

        Events include:

        „Tonight : Pete Wagner Big Band in concert; 7:30-10:30 p.m., adults only; Admission: $15 per couple, $10 single, light refreshments will be served. The pool will be open during the concert.

        „Saturday : Drink Splash, 1:30 p.m.; a children's event.

        „July 7: Adult Moonlight Swim, 8:30-10:30 p.m.

        „July 22: Water Bash, with Ooh La La & the Greasers, 6-9 p.m., admission $4 per person; $10 per family if purchased before the day of the concert at the pool; $7 per person, $15 per family at the gate concert evening. The pool will be open during the concert.

        „ August: D.J. Teen Swim, date to be determined.

        The Montgomery City Pool, built in 1996, is open daily through Labor Day from 11:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
