First of all, most of you do not know what you are talking about. The swimming pool in Glassport was operating at a loss of approximately $40,000 per year during the last years it was open. It was due in part because of mismanagement but mostly because of more people being able to afford backyard pools. There were not enough people buying tickets/passes to pay the bills either. The few people who went ran wild through the place: smoking and eating around the pool area, bring their lounge chairs into that area and basically doing whatever. This is one taxpayer who is glad it was closed and hope it never reopens. The borough missed an opportunity to unload the lot to Spaggy. If they had given it to him for free, we would not be paying our borough workers for days to cut the grass and it would be back on the tax rolls. Now we are going to spend $100,000 filling in the hole and making another park for the kids to vandalize!

Yep...they want to reopen the pool for who?

The elderly who wear pampers and have incontinence issues?

Section 8 tenants who can't afford to swim there and will therefore lash out by vandalizing it?

The rest have their own pools.

You open a playground and it will just end up vandalized and dealers will be hanging out. They will be draining the grinds constantly keeping up with maintenance and patrolling problems.

Until this town is rid of all the undesirable elements, leave it alone, don't work back asswards trying to beautify.

The mayor needs to instruct all cops to do their job and start picking up druggies and sending them downtown.

I see riff raff walking the streets in the wee hours of the morning, and it ain't for exercise.

Start asking these people questions why they are out at 3 AM......most likely they are scoping out homes.

We all call the cops about these people walking aROUND AND get no where.
The cops are a joke and it starts with the mayor.

And again, until that happens and the town is cleaned up why bother with the whole flowers and unicorns and beautification? It isn't going to deter criminals

The closing of the pool was the best thing ever. You had riff raff going there, the pool was losing money ,not just the one year but many years. Fixing it would have cost as too much.

I say put a swimming pool in the basement of the new police station since Dave K's company would do all the work..
Yeah baby!
