Lewisboro To Pay $475K To Settle Town Pool Dispute

LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The Lewisboro Town Board has approved a $475,000 bond to help pay a swimming pool contractor as part of lawsuit settlement.

Town Supervisor Peter Parsons said that as part of the settlement, town officials are not allowed to disclose any details and have signed a confidentially agreement.

Town Attorney Anthony Mole said that, under to the agreement, the town could release only the following statement:

“The Town of Lewisboro and Scott Swimming Pools Inc. have resolved their dispute concerning the modernization and reconstruction of the Town Park pool prior to the conclusion of the arbitration pursuant to a confidential settlement agreement under which the Town of Lewisboro shall pay Scott Swimming Pools Inc. $475,000 on or before Nov. 1, 2012.
