DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - The City of Denison announced changes to summer events in its Phase II reopening plans following Gov. Greg Abbot's guidelines.

In-person meetings, such as City Council and other commissions, will begin meeting in person June 1. Meeting schedules are available on the city's website.

Also beginning June 1, Waterloo Pool will open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. by reservation only. Anyone wanting to make a reservation can do so online or by calling 903-464-4475.

Music on Main has been delayed three weeks until June 12. The city will be holding a drive-in version of Movies on Main on May 29 and June 5 to make up for the concerts originally planned those days.

Music and Movies on Main will take place at Forest Park, which city officials say will provide more opportunity for drive-in attendance and physical distancing. The city will provide a live Facebook feed one hour before the concerts begin to help maximize the experience.

At this time, the city's annual July 4 firework celebration at Munson Stadium will continue as scheduled. City officials say there may be adjustments to activities so they can follow state guidelines.

The Denison Public Library will continue to hold curbside service form 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. They are admitting a limited number of guests to use computers and browse. Anyone with questions is asked to call 903-465-1797.

The Denison Parks and Recreation department says Popsicles in the Park, THF Park Birthday Bask, Mother & Son Dance, Catfish Rodeo and Touchdown Alley tailgating will continue as scheduled, with possible changes to following reopening guidelines.

Parks and Recreation also announced park restrooms, drinking fountains and sports courts will be available for use. All playgrounds and splash pads remain closed.

The Denison Senior Citizens Center will be available for Jazzercize classes to resume. The city says classes will follow safe reopening guidelines from state and federal officials.
