Millersport looking for ideas to help keep swimming pool open


I have worked for the Village of Millersport for more than four years and in that time the village has had to transfer an average of $8,000 per year to operate the swimming pool. The pool does not have a specific amount of money appropriated for operations. Rather, it is totally dependent on memberships, daily admission, party rentals and donations.

We need your help in finding ways to increase our pool revenue. We are close to closing down the pool. If that happens, we may never get the pool reopened. Our pool has been a fixture in the area for close to 40 years. For many people, their employment career started at the pool.

Any suggestions or ideas will be appreciated. Please call me at 467-2333. Help us keep this area asset. Vincent Popo Village of Millersport
