GREENBURGH, N.Y. - The Greenburgh Town Board has awarded a $110,850 contract to a New Jersey company to install a watertight PVC pool liner on the main swimming pool at Anthony F. Veteran Park.
The work on the nearly 50-year-old swimming facility, which also includes repairs to the pool shell, will be completed by Ray Palmer Associates in time for the start of this year's swimming season.
"Hopefully these repairs will buy us some time and we will be able to extend the life of the pool," said Supervisor Paul Feiner.
In September 2009, the town retained Ward Associates to document existing conditions of Greenburgh's pools and make recommendations. The estimated engineering and construction costs for a new pool at AFV Park was $5.95 million if done last year and $6.7 million if completed in 2016.
The adult/competitive pool at AFV Park has a fiberglass liner and Parks and Recreation Commissioner Gerard Byrne said the town is considering also putting a PVC liner there in the near future. The interactive pool is a painted concrete pool shell that "is in excellent shape," according to Byrne.
At the end of January, the town board agreed to spend $45,000 in bonds to purchase and install aquatic chair lifts and lifeguard chairs at the AFV Park pool complex, which is very popular with residents.
