Northside Pool to be closed this weekend

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Northside Pool in Waynesboro will be closed this weekend so it can be drained and patched again.

Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said the municipal pool's issues developed last weekend, which was the opening weekend for the season.

"We patched it (earlier), but apparently some of the patches didn't hold and came up," Hamberger said.

Poor weather and the amount of work necessitate keeping the pool closed to the public temporarily, he said.

Opening weekend was a week early this year because of the date on which Memorial Day fell.
