The issue surrounding an ordinance for pool passes in the city of Galion is expected to be resolved soon. At their council meeting Tuesday night, the re-wording of the proposed amendment was discussed again.

The current proposal suggests changing the wording to a "group" pass which will include up to two adults and an unlimited number of children age 18 and younger, who are related to at least one of the adults. In an effort to include everyone, council members suggested changing that wording to include foster families, which some say opens the door to limitless changes.

The ordinance was sent back to committee for further discussion. It's likely changes won't be seen until next summer, since Heise Park Pool closes in a month.

The discussion to change the ordinance came after Galion resident Melody Mohn and her partner Hela Young were denied a family pool pass earlier this summer. The ordinance originally stated, "a family pass must be issued to a mother and father"
