Funding slashed for pools at Roberto Clemente Park & Casamento Park in Islip
Two Islip pools could close this summer.
The town slashed funding for pools at Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood and Casamento Park in West Islip due to Sandy recovery costs.
Islip Recreation Commissioner Joe Montuori says the department is dealing with about $22 million in damage from the superstorm. He says town leaders are looking into state funding or privatization of the pools.
