More non-residents are using Loyalsock Township pools this summer due to neighboring municipalities' lack of swimming facilities.
When asked by Supervisor Richard Wheeland Tuesday night during the supervisors' meeting, Shannon Lukowsky, township director of recreation and parks, said she did notice an increase of people from out of the area using the community pool at 2103 Northway Road.
"This year we seem to be seeing more Williamsport groups coming in," Lukowsky said. "We're definitely getting a lot because Memorial (pool) is closed."
Supervisors voted to hire Allison Frederick as a substitute staff member for the summer youth program at a rate of $7.25 an hour.
Jeff Rauff, supervisor, thanked township residents for the well wishes he received while recuperating from a bicycle crash he suffered April 3 while riding on Lycoming Creek Road. Rauff was hospitalized in Geisinger Medical Center in Danville for a short period of time.
"I'm very fortunate that we have a community that was concerned about me and my family," he said.
Supervisors also passed a resolution in support of re-implementing the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, which would revive the separation between commercial banking and the securities business and restore the U.S. System of Public Credit to assist in public infrastructure projects.
Some blame the repeal of many of the provisions in the act in 1999 that led to the financial crisis of 2008.
