KPD Pool Renovations On Hold Due To State Freeze

Park projects across the state are in jeopardy following a freeze on state funding. Governor Bruce Rauner indefinitely suspended grants for park district construction projects last week in an attempt to address the state’s fiscal crisis.

One of those suspended projects included pool renovations at the Kingsbury Park District pool in Greenville. KPD Director Jerry Sauerwein gave WGEL an update on the situation:

Sauerwein encouraged residents who feel strongly about the pool renovation project to contact the governor’s office as well as State Senator Kyle McCarter and Representative John Cavaletto.
