Town accepts grant for pool improvements

WILLIAMSPORT — The town of Williamsport received a $35,000 state Program Open Space grant to resurface the pool at Byron Memorial Park and add a lift to help handicapped people get in and out of the pool, Town Clerk Donnie Stotelmyer said Thursday.

The Williamsport Town Council voted 5-0 on Monday night to accept the grant, Mayor James G. McCleaf II said. Councilman Timothy W. Fraker was absent from the meeting.

The new lift, which is mobile, was required by the state, Stotelmyer said. The lift will be ready for the pool season, which begins Memorial Day weekend.

The pumps that circulate water and help with filtration and chlorination for both the baby and main pools are reconditioned every year, but the one for the main pool will need to be replaced after next season, Stotelmyer said.

A new pump could cost $3,500, town officials said.

The council voted 5-0 on Monday night to accept the bid. Councilman Timothy W. Fraker was absent from the meeting.
