West Pottsgrove Community Pool Closing to Financial Reasons

To: Members and customers of the West Pottsgrove Community Pool

Earlier this week the Township was notified by Bennington Pool Services (the private operator the West Pottsgrove Community Pool) that they will be closing the pool to the public for the remainder of the season due to financial reasons.

Township staff did meet with the operator to discuss alternate options and explored other options to try and keep the pool open for the remainder of the season.

However, given the juncture of time that we are at with regard to the swimming season and the time and other resources required to get the pool properly setup and staffed, the township decided that we would not be able to take over the operations for the rest of the season.

The pool operator also informed us that he will be contacting members on what they will need to do to get a refund of their paid membership fees.

Both the Township staff and officials agree that we should now begin planning on how we are going to proceed with pool operations for next season and going forward.

Respectfully submitted,
Craig Lloyd
Manager, West Pottsgrove Township
