After listening to approximately 15 members of the public make the case tonight to keep Burwood Park open, Recreation Commissioners Scott Faulkner, Ken Henges and Tom Kemper took a short recess to consider the matter. Within minutes they reappeared and announced that Burwood pool would be open this year for one year while they evaluate its future. Those in attendance, approximately 35 adults and half that many children, immediately applauded and cheered their decision.
We’ll have more about the meeting in the morning, but be sure to watch tonight’s 11:00 p.m. news on Channel 5 for their coverage of tonight’s meeting. We understand Channels 12 and 19 have also done stories.
