Thanks to the generosity of the John E. Morgan Foundation, residents of the Tamaqua Area School District will have the opportunity to enjoy the H.D. Buehler Memorial Pool at a discount rate.

Applications will be available as of April 2 at Tamaqua Borough Hall, 320 E. Broad St. Anyone who returns their application to Tamaqua Borough Hall before April 30 is guaranteed to have their pass before opening day.

Daily passes, for TASD residents, will be $5 Monday through Friday and $6 on Saturday and Sunday for anyone over the age of six.

Daily rates for non district residents will be $10 Monday through Friday and $12 on Saturday and Sunday.

Children under the age of six, resident and non-resident alike, will be charged $1 per day, weekdays and weekends.
