Debate: Outdoor public pools are a valuable and necessary function of a city?

A debate about the role of government in providing summertime recreation. Are outdoor public swimming pools valuable for a community? Is it important to learn to swim, and should the government pay for recreation facilities for all to use? Minnesotans debate these issues. From the "Sartell Says" debate series, the motion is: "Outdoor public pools are a valuable and necessary function of a city." Moderated by Patty Candella.
