POOL UPDATE!!!!

Citizens of Beardstown, we need your help.  On March 9 the Park District received some very disappointing news.  Because of Illinois Governor’s Executive Order 15-08 (a freeze of spending order), our pool project has been suspended and we have been asked to cease incurring any costs for which grant reimbursement would be requested.  We do know that this has affected every pending grant recipient in the State including those who have already started construction on their projects.  We do believe that this is only a temporary suspension and that our grant money will eventually be released for the continuation of our pool construction.  We are encouraging all citizens to directly contact the Governor’s office at (217) 782-0244 and our state legislators to voice our concern over the delay and to emphasis the importance of the pool project to the community of Beardstown.  We also hope you will also send letters to the legislators and Governor.  Please specifically mention Beardstown and that our project is a community swimming pool and stress the importance of it for our river based town. 

Thank you for all of the support you as citizens have already given towards the pool project and thank you for your help in ending this very disappointing delay as quickly as possible.
