It's on their website

Click on "pool"

What are our tax dollars going to? We voted in a referendum to increase our taxes to pay for the pool a few years back, and now it won't even OPEN??

"We regret to inform you that at this time, due to economic and continual loss of money because of repairs and Govermental mandates the Marengo Park District Board has decided that the pool will not be able to open this season."

What are the Governmental mandates they speak of? Seems like a pretty good PR vague line of BS to me. I would be interested to see the itemized list of repairs and how much tax that was allocated to the pool.

Is there not money in the 2011 park district budget allocated in last years budget to fund the pool in 2011...and if no pool opens where will those funds be used???

All the money is going to pay her salary so she can run the place into the ground! Way to go Park Board! You're doing a great job!

I'm trying to sell my house and the appearance of downtown Marengo sure isn't going to entice anyone to live here. Nothing but empty storefronts and restaurants/bars. Now the pool won't be open. How can a pool not open? Have they discontinued daycare because no one needed the service? I think someone should check into their fiscal irresponsibility and give the community their park district back!

They like to blame everyone and everything but themselves. The Marengo Methodist Church has a great program for the kids and is expanding! The director of the park is selfrighteous and clueless. She NEVER should have been put into that job position and the board is to blame. They don't have the guts to tell her to find a new job. The park will be completely closed within the next year and it is nobody's fault but their own. It's sad
