Put a hold on the pool

(05/16/2005)

Open Letter to Mayor Neil Blankenship, Grantsville Town Council

Sirs/Madams:

I drove over past the Grantsville swimming pool and noticed it had not been filled in as of yet.

As a parent, citizen of Grantsville and member of the town council that is to be sworn in this July, I ask that you please withhold filling the pool in until the new council has a chance to be seated and to look into the matter. I know that there is copious amounts of work that need done to the old pool and I know that funding is hard to obtain. And, I know that I am not a miracle worker.

That said I would like a chance at fixing what we have - the town pool - before turning it into something that we cannot fix.

I ask for this time as a parent, resident of Grantsville and as a future council member.

Cordially,
Gaylen Duskey
