CASPER, Wyo. — In 2018, the Casper City Council decided to raise the admission fee at Mike Cedar pool by $0.50.

They also decided to eliminate the admission fee to Marion Kreiner pool in north Casper.

During their Tuesday, June 25 work session, City Manager Carter Napier said that the additional fees at Mike Sedar was expected to generate an additional $10,000 in revenue.

He added that Marion Kreiner pool only generated about $3,500 in revenue when the fees were still in place.

After eliminating the fees there, attendance at Marion Kreiner increased.

“That’s been very popular,” Napier said. “It’s a huge increase in usage over there, threefold.”

He asked the City Council whether they’d like to continue in this direction. Council decided that Marion Kreiner will continue to be free and Mike Cedar pool will continue with the current admission rates.

When Council decided in 2018 to raise Mike Sedar pool admission, they felt it was appropriate since it is the newest facility with the most amenities in Casper.
