SPRINGFIELD POOL & CAMP UPDATE
Capdice also noted the ongoing status of the Springfield Pool, which has moved forward after an authorization agreement between the township committee and the Summit-Area YMCA.
"The Township Committee signed our side of the agreement with the Summit Y," Capodice said. "The Summit Y has decided to review the agreement again to see if it makes sense for them financially. Initially they believed it would. Then they decided to revisit the numbers. As soon as they approve of the agreement, as a whole, we will update you accordingly."
