Randolph township is having a referendum this Tuesday,Feb. 28th, to decide on whether to build a "tax free swimming pool". Actually, looks more like an aquatic center. Township of Randolph Community Pool (broken link)

While I'm inclined to vote Yes on this, I'm usually a skeptic about government proposed programs. I'm not a big believer in giving government more money to spend. The less taxes, the better.

That being said, I must say I have been impressed with the Randolph local government. I am afraid, though, that while it will be tax free for the first few years, what happens in, say, 20 years from now when there's a short fall?

I would like to hear from residents of the other towns listed below that have these "tax free swimming pools". Has your experience been good or bad? Pros and Cons?

Bernards Township Chester Florham Park Cranford
Westfield Millburn Princeton Rockaway Twp
Madison Morris Twp New Providence Summit
Metuchen Leonia Hanover Twp Maplewood
Mountainside Wayne West Caldwell East Brunswick

Thank you.
