The Weirton Millsop Community Center
is NOW installing a new chairlift to assist handicapped patrons to the swimming pool area. The new lift should be ready for
operation this week.
WMCC received a Community Development Block
Grant that will cover most of the costs of the new chairlift, which will come with a price tag around $20,000.00.
Many of the Center’s patrons need
the chairlift to gain access to the swimming pool, which is located on the building’s second level – 12 steps
up from the dressing rooms.
The new lift will replace a chairlift that
is nearing 20-years old, but is currently operational on a limited basis.
For information regarding chairlift access and availability, please call (304) 797-5719.
