The town of Plainfield has changed their budget proposal to include the community pool that some residents voiced their opinions verbally and also by voting by squashing the previous budget by almost a 2-1 margin. The new budget which will be discussed at a town meeting Tuesday night at Plainfield Town Hall at 7pm. The general government budget was increased by $300,000.
Plainfield resident commented on social media when asked what the community pool meant to her, she responded by saying “Family time. My daughters and I go every week, we look forward to spending 2 hours together having fun and getting exercise. The best part is…NO electronics!!” However, another resident, Deborah Longo, wasn’t as receptive to keeping the pool open by saying “If the town are gonna raise our property taxes to save the pool I will say close the pool, we are taxed enough in this state.”
The town is hoping for a better turnout since roughly 10% of the town’s registered voters cast a ballot in the last referendum.
