Rebecca Zemencik/Citizen-Standard Photo The Tri-Valley Community Pool is in need of a new pump. A committee of persons interested in making the Tri-Valley Community Pool a better place and keeping it open for future generations is going to meet this Sunday, March 12, at 2 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, library, Gap and Maple Streets, Valley View. The public is encouraged to attend.

VALLEY VIEW – As spring draws closer, plans are shaping up for the opening of the Tri-Valley Community Pool.
The pool is in need of a new pump in order for the pool to function this season. Hegins Township Supervisors announced at their meeting last Wednesday that the pump will cost $17,986. Since only one price quote was obtained, it was advised by Kevin Walsh, who was serving as solicitor in the absence of Donald Karpowich, the supervisors obtain two more price quotes and table the purchase until the April meeting.
“It is a startling amount of money, but look at how long the pump lasts,” said Supervisor Sandy McCullough. “The pump that needs replaced is the original pump from when the pool first opened. It the new lasts as long as the old one, it’s a long-term investment.”
Secretary/treasurer Cathy Moyer said she has applied on behalf of the Tri-Valley Community Pool for a Williamson Pipeline grant and is hopeful that at least $10,000 can be obtained.
