Water, pool, and police are topics of Shelton Village Board

Tackling whether or not to open the swimming pool for the coming months, reviewing a letter on manganese levels in the village’s water, and getting an update on the progress of hiring a police officer occupied the time of the Shelton Village Board of Trustees as they met via ZOOM for the second month in a row on Thursday, May 14.

Trustees had a lengthy discussion on the subject of whether or not to open the village’s swimming pool this summer amid COVID-19 concerns and state issued Directed Health Measures (DHM) with pool manager Brenda Moeller.

Moeller explained that she had spoken with state officials who told her that they are not telling communities not to open their pools, but to closely pay attention to and follow health district DHMs. She said that her thoughts on opening included using the first week of June to warm up the water and apply chemicals, training lifeguards and doing CPR training during the second week of June, and the third week of June would be used for lap swimming and giving swimming lessons which would be spaced out during the day to allow cleaning and sanitizing between lessons.
