Water Park in Brookville

March 5, 2014- John Pozza
BROOKVILLE- Brookville Council last night debated moving forward on a proposed recreational project for the borough. Following suggestions from residents at the borough's recent town hall meeting, council's community resources committee proposed pursuing a grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to help develop a water park.
While water parks have been successful drawing people to communities similar to Brookville, council opted to table the idea until it has a plan in place. Most grants require a feasibility study to even apply, which, in this case would have cost around $3,000...money council wasn't willing to spend.

In other business, fire chief Jim Lipuma said his department was no longer interested in leasing the former school administration building from the borough for training and office space. While council previously approved the arrangement, Lipuma said the borough has been dragging its feet for over three months in getting a lease drawn up.
Council has continued using taxpayer money this winter to maintain and heat the vacant building for nearly $300 a month.
