Entry into the Wellington Aquatic Leisure Centre has been reduced to $2 but the same will not be done in Dubbo and Geurie.
An extraordinary meeting of Dubbo Regional Council was held on Thursday night after mayor Ben Shields decided to slash the entry price at Wellington Pool when it opens on Saturday.
From November 16 to January 26, adults and children will pay $2 for entry into the newly-refurbished $8.35 million Wellington Aquatic Leisure Centre.
Cr Shields said he thought the reduced price was important to show Wellington residents their support while the pool was closed had been appreciated.
He said the region, and particularly Wellington, had been "doing it tough".
By reducing the entry fee, the mayor wants to encourage people from outside Wellington to visit the town.
Part of the entry fee will be donated to a charity, which will be determined at a later date.
In Dubbo and Geurie, a number of "family fun days" will be held instead with $2 pool entry fees.
Cr Shields said the reduced fee wasn't sustainable for the same time period in Dubbo due to staffing and safety issues.
Councillors Stephen Lawrence, Vicki Etheridge, Greg Mohr and David Grant were absent from the meeting.
