Ridgway Borough Council voted 4-3 on Monday evening to split a bill 50-50 between the borough and the Ridgway YMCA for filling their swimming pool. The side of the pool had stains from manganese from the water in it and adding chlorine to the pool did not help. Local firefighters transported water from the community pool across the street and into the YMCA pool.
