Wardensville Council Ponders Viability of Public Pool

“I think the community needs to have a serious discussion about the future of the the pool,” said Wardensville Mayor Betsy Orndoff-Sayers. “The pool is 42 years old and in need of major repairs.”

The Wardensville Council met on Monday, Sept. 10 and Mayor Orndoff-Sayers thanked several people for their help with closing the pool for the season.

“We need to purchase a new cover,” she said. “It will cost $4,700. We put the old one on in the meantime, but it’s in pretty bad shape.”

Recorder Maureen Martin said operating the pool this summer cost $15,000. “And it was a short season,” she said.

Councilwoman Charlotte Bowman recommended not purchasing a new cover until the public could give some input on its future.
