After the story broke here on The Schilling Show blog last week, and later was+ picked up by The Hook and NBC 29, Charlottesville City has relented on its discriminatory two-tiered pricing policy for pool passes.
The City’s policy, as originally confirmed by Ric Barrick,+ previously prohibited private school families from receiving the discounted “sale” rate. Charlottesville’s web site has changed and now states that the price is available to all students:
Charlottesville City Student – valid for any student (excluding college students)+that has residency within the City of Charlottesville
So, private school kids, splash away. The elitist policies of Charlottesville City Hall have been drowned out by the cries of reason, at least until the next time they think nobody’s watching.
