Debt Crunch Leaves IROC in Cold Water

August 12, 2011

DERBY – A lack of finances has caused officials at Indoor Recreation of Orleans County (IROC) to pull the plug on the system that heats the therapy and lap pools. The therapy pool is closed but the lap pool will remain open, unheated, at least through next Tuesday.
“We’re trying to decide how much of the pool we can keep open, if any,” said Executive Director Phil White. “We’re looking to see whether we can get some help with operating costs to keep the therapy pool open. Until we have some solid support for that, we have to assume we’re not going to heat the pools for a while.”
