Funds will help with Dormont pool maintenance - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Dormont officials will use $75,000 from Allegheny County to help with needed repairs at the borough's swimming pool.This check giving opportunity is nothing but PORK from Onorato. He uses the money as if it is 'walking around money' -- WAM. Same too with the money from the state.
Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato presented the borough with a check Saturday during the Potomac Avenue Street Fair & Blues Festival.
The latest funding brings the total in state and county grants and donations to help maintain the 87-year-old landmark to $650,000, said John Maggio, president of Friends of the Dormont Pool. The group has raised $60,000.
Officials hope to raise $1 million to sustain operations at the 60,000-square-foot pool.
I want parks people to have a better say as to where good investments should be made.
The concept of a the regional Pittsburgh Park District, an effort I championed years ago, is still practical and visionary.
