The costs of running the Dubbo pool both currently and before it was managed internally is expected to be released this month.
Councillor John Ryan has called for Dubbo Regional Council to release the cost of running the Dubbo, Geurie and Wellington pools from the 2016/17 season to 2020/21.
In 2019, the decision was made for the Dubbo pool to be managed internally.

During the time period being investigated, Wellington and Dubbo councils were also amalgamated, and millions was spent to redevelop the Wellington pool.
Mayor Stephen Lawrence said the cost comparison would give good insight into the changes made over the pool management.
"We have made very significant changes years ago to the management of the Dubbo pool and frankly I would like to know whether in retrospect that was the right or wrong decision, because of the numbers at least," he said.
Cr Ryan said he had been asked a lot of questions about the pools.
"I think it's important in the interest of transparency and information back to the community that we get a grasp of these facilities. There have been lots of changes, not the least of which has been the amalgamation and the upgrade to the Wellington pool," he said.
"I think if we've got clear and concise body of information out there it will be very beneficial to the community."
The individual costs to run the Dubbo, Wellington and Geurie aquatic centres will be presented at the October council meeting.
