On Monday December 7th, 2015 the Board of Aldermen approved putting an item on the ballot requesting permission to bond up to $2.5 million dollars to build a new outdoor pool and bathhouse at White Park and renovate the existing pump house. The vote will be on Tuesday March 1, 2016.
The average payment over the course of the 20 year bond for a house valued at $150,000 is $26.00. For the same value house the annual cost in your city taxes will be $5.25 to subsidize the operation of the pool. In previous years the cost was $8.70 to subsidize the operation of the pool.
What should we do?
