Former pool operator Kevin Dessart said he suspects the city found a way to terminate his contract to operate the Aquatics and Fitness Center at Memorial Park and Portal and Wilson Ranch outdoor pools when a third party tried to take over Monument Valley Pool.
The city says Dessart has his facts wrong.
“Kevin’s accusations are inaccurate. Plain and simple…..the termination of the contract was described/expressed clearly in the “Termination Letter” of his breach of the contract and anticipatory breach,” Curt DeCapite, procurement services manager, said in an email.
“The ‘cure’ offered by Kevin to his breach of the contract was not accepted by City management and therefore under the provisions of the agreement the termination took place,” he wrote.
