One Open, Five To Go
San Diego’s ongoing financial problems have prevented it from selling bonds intended to raise money for the replacement of five lifeguard stations in South Mission Beach, North Pacific Beach, La Jolla Cove, Children’s Pool in La Jolla and La Jolla Shores.
The issue is discussed in an article on the lifeguard service’s new tower in Pacific Beach, opened in May 2006 after original approval by the San Diego city council in 2001, and financed by a 2002 bond issuance that was supposed to raise money for several of the needed stations. Cost overruns are blamed for the fact that only the one station was actually built with the raised funds.
