Letter to the Editor: Andes pool problems the result of poor planning

Dear Editor,

This is my response to Andes Town Supervisor Martin Donnelly's letter in last weeks Catskill Mountain News ("Andes pool problem explained," July 17, 2014), regarding the ongoing problems with the opening of the Andes Town Pool. I would like to address his letter point by point.

Mr. Donnelly states, "Unfortunately we are not clairvoyant as we would have been able to foresee a problem prior to July 4th and saved all of us from the angry rhetoric, indicating we put a damper on some of your 4th of July plans." I don't believe that the paranormal has much to do with the problem. I do believe that inattention, poor planning, and not having a professional in charge of the pool maintenance is the problem.  Read more
