City's 'West Nile cesspool'

In view of recent stories of the financial problems faced by the city of Modesto and its police and firefighters making huge salaries: The pool at Whitmore Park on Bowen and College avenues is a West Nile cesspool. Any child that were to fall into it could not be found due to the algae. The police and fire departments want a pat on the back for a job well done, yet proper pool maintenance could easily cure this issue and be much cheaper for taxpayers.
