Last night there was a big sound at the Anthony Veteran Town Park complex – a transformer or one of the underground legs that feed electricity exploded. As a result, the pool (and kitchen which serves the nutrition program) is out of power, temporarily. Unfortunately, we have to shut down the pool until we can restore power. Town staff worked last night and contacted electricians. We had a meeting early this morning and are trying to identify the cause of the problem and to have the problem corrected asap.

Seniors will most likely receive cold meals for the remainder of the week. Over 800 children (Greenburgh rec and Edgemont rec) receive daily swim activities at the camp. We are planning land based camp activities. A company has been hired to try to locate the electrical problem. Once power is restored it will take 24 hours to re-open the pool. An update will be provided by this evening as to the status of the repairs.

We apologize for any inconvenience. However---these problems happen.

Thank goodness this didn't happen with hundreds of our children in the pool.
What kind of preventive maintenance should have been done to prevent this?
Are our own infra-structures up to Town Code?

Geez - accidents do happen, even in Greenburgh.

This town does not believe in preventive medicine.

First of all they do not have the time nor do they have the inspectors to check things out..

You heard the saying it's not my job.
Well if it ain't the towns job then whose job is it.

Hal Samis did not wrie that comment about seniors. Lets face it if seniors live in Greenburgh they7 can very well pay for their food.

I'M a senior and I pay for what I eat.
I would be insulted if some one offered me something for free.
I worked all my life and I have never asked for a handout.

You should not blame Samis for any or all negativity that is written .
