As Monday morning temperatures rose through the 80s, local residents got a chance to cool off at the town pool as the swim facilities in Monroe and Trumbull were open for the first time all season. Safety restrictions remain in place, however.
In Trumbull, the pool at Robert Beach Park opened at 10 a.m., with residents able to sign up for two-hour sessions from 10 to noon, 1 to 3 and 4 to 6 p.m. The pool at Tashua Knolls will follow a similar schedule, with sessions starting and ending a half hour later. The pools will be open daily until Sept. 8.
