The stoush over the name of a central Auckland swimming pool has been resolved amicably.
John Fay, who redeveloped and ran the Tepid Baths in the 80s and early 90s, has sold the name 'The Teps' to the Auckland Council for $1.
Chief executive Doug McKay says the settlement comes after a series of misunderstandings over who owned the name.
He apologises and is pleased there's been such a generous outcome.
Mr Fay says it was always his intention to make sure 'The Teps' name was returned to the city.
However, he says because of presumptions of previous councils he wanted to make it clear it was his name to give.
He says now that's been agreed on, he's handed over the name and is happy with the outcome.
