**Summary:**We construct a system of model commutative symmetric operator algebras (c.s.o.a.) in a Pontryagin space $\Pi_1$ such that both the weak operator and the uniform operator closures of any c.s.o.a. in $\Pi_1$ can be described in terms of the models found. We then use that representation to obtain the theorem of bicommutant for a c.s.o.a. in $\Pi_1$.

**Keywords:**Commutative, algebra, Pontryagin space, unitary equivalence, singular, weak topology, closure, bicommutant.
