As of right now, the Coudersport town pool will no longer be opening due to expenses our borough does not have. If the pool were to close, there would be no swimming lessons for your kids, and no safe...

we are already taxed to death i for one donot want my already stiff taxes raised to pay for the pool if our poor community cant afford it without raising taxes i would rather see our tax moneyfor more important things like our horrible sidewalks library parking lot etc i pray there is a way but NOT WITH MY TAXES BEING RAISED we are a poor community that apparantly cannot afford the pool the cost for something that is used only a couple months a year and requires year round care way to expensive unless there are grants and private donations

CLOSE the pool. It is a safety hazard. John Rigas stole all our investment money. Made property become over inflated. If the town wants the pool ask him to pay for it. He still has Millions and can't take it with him. Plus, it's not that the town wants the pool. It is only a select few that want it. I'm with the other comment build some nice sidewalks at the cost of the Coudersport and not the home owners.

Where is this meeting? I feel this is very important issue for our community. One by one all the recreational activities are being taken away from our children. This is not only a recreational activity it provides a life saving skill. In our area there is constant exposure to rivers, lakes, streams and ponds. It is imperative that children in our county are given the opportunity to learn how to swim. Saving one child's life from drowning is more important to me than paving the library parking lot or fixing a sidewalk, which the boro already has plans to do.

Don't blame John Rigas for all the problems of Coudersport. Obviously you never really knew John! Why don't you get out there and try come up with a plan to help!

Learning to swim is a privilege, not a right. Also, many MANY kids and adults have learned to swim without access to a community pool. The projected cost for repairs and on-going maintenance is perilously high for the tax base. Close the pool and move on with it.

Closing of that pool is inevitable unless the Borough Council steps up and takes responsibility. People who are calling on the county or state or federal government for a bail out but this is a borough issue. Why should taxpayers all over Potter County, or Pennsylvania or the United States be pouring money into this if the borough itself (which owns the pool) will not? If you put this up for a public vote for the county the results would be overwhelming NO. Maybe the people who live in the borough feel differently. It is their issue and not the rest of us.

Swim in the river. That's what we did as kids and it's free. But I know the little snowflakes today might step in a rock and cut their foot.

Where in the h#ll do these way out there prices come from ? I could put a brand new pool in for half the money they claim the repairs would cost !! The contractor or engineers that came up with that much money are ripping you off !!

The pictures I saw of the pool indicate it had NOT been maintained at all for some time --now they're putting a big guilt trip on the citizenry to foot the bill. Weren't there funds allocated for this ?
Where did they go.?

12:18. Buy some periods for your sentences. It would be more comprehensible.
3:05, when are you going to start building? Send in a formal BINDING proposal to Coudersport Borough and the PA DEP for approval. Problem solved, thank you for stepping up and saving us that much money. Maybe we will put up a statue in your honor when the pool is complete for 1/2 of the proposed costs! Bronze or cast iron?

Our pool has been used by a wide variety of ages and by many communities not just Coudy. I believe everyone should learn to swim and our little pool has supplied Navy Seals with that skill. As a community we have seen loss after loss(stores downtown, ski tow, bowling alley)if WE don't begin to invest in our community where will it end. The government is not always the answer, we are the answer. Non of us appreciate paying higher taxes, but it seems to me this is for something that will help to improve our community. I would love to see a pool where children and adults can swim for little or no cost. We must help ourselves

Wow 1:28, Why don't you go to Mr Rigas & ask him, as kind hearted as he is, he probably wouldn't hesitate to donate...
