Pool Fees to Stay the Same
West Orange Council agreed to keep pool fees at Ginny Dunkel Pool the same as last year.
The West Orange Township Council agreed at Tuesday night's meeting to keep the 2013 fees at the township’s Ginny Dunkel Pool the same as last year.
Resident Christine Bosco presented the council with a chart showing pool fee schedules for local towns in an attempt to have the council raise fees.
“The pool doesn’t pay for itself and we all pay for it out of our taxes, even if we don’t use it," Bosco said.
The council approved the fee schedule by a 4-1 vote and agreed to consider raising fees next year.
Councilman Jerry Guarino said, “There is a price point where people will not or cannot purchase a membership and we service all of West Orange.”
Councilwoman Susan McCartney added, “Our registration has been low and we are hoping that the new kiddie pool area will increase public interest and improve memberships numbers this season.”
