Waldwick July 29, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 9 Council considers changes for swim team’s pool use The Waldwick Swim Team may have to change its practice sessions next season. The Mayor and Council at their recent meeting discussed the team’s use of the municipal pool and changes that can be made so that the least number of people are inconvenienced. Borough Administrator Gary Kratz said a number of issues have surfaced about the pool’s use, including admission rules for spectators and the time of the practices. Kratz said that while the team members have paid memberships to the pool, parents or other family members who want to watch the practices or the meets may not have paid memberships or day passes. “People complain that they have to pay to get in. They don’t like one-day passes,” commented Councilman Thomas Giordano. “The parents want to watch, but they don’t want to pay,” Kratz added. “We have received several emails on this. We should switch practices outside of normal pool hours.” The team’s evening practices – from 5:45 to 8 p.m. - are also an issue, Kratz said. “People want to go for a swim after work, and they get booted out by the swim team. That’s ridiculous,” said Councilwoman Anita Bozzo. “The practice time doesn’t have to be convenient.” Kratz recommended that a different schedule be set up for the pool next year, with team practices from 8:30 to 11 a.m.; lessons from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and open pool from 1 until 8 p.m. He cautioned, however, that someone would have to open the pool and questioned who would be responsible for the cost incurred. The council agreed that no changes would be made this year. The team’s season ends in early August. Giordano said that team leaders should be contacted now and warned that changes would be made for next season. “Last year they started making decisions, and we were caught in the middle. They should be aware that things will change to accommodate the community and the team, because some items are not fair to certain people,” said Giordano. “They shouldn’t set up anything for next year until we speak to them,” he added.
