UPDATE: I spoke too soon about the zombie project: BET Democrats and Republican are ready to dump $200,000 more into the sink hole, to hire a consultant. Forget the pool, why on earth does the town need to spend $200,000 to hire an outsider to move this scheme through our own zoning process?
Though Tarkington is opposed to the funding request for the pool, which is leaking water through cracks and has no restroom facilities, it does not appear to be enough to stall the funds.
Her three colleagues, fellow Republican and committee Chairman Joseph Pellegrino, and Democrats Jeffrey Ramer and William Finger, spoke in favor of moving the project along.
Check out this bit of objective, fact-based reporting by Greenwich Time:
That should come as good news to Byram residents for whom the pool, the only public facility of its kind in Greenwich, is a source of embarrassment among residents of the neighborhood and the greater swimming community. The project’s supporters, including the Junior League of Greenwich, have faced an years-long battle to secure preliminary funding.
The $200,000 would be used to commission more detailed drawings of the project and to steer it through the land use process.
