Fast Focus: What would you like to see in a Tri-Cities aquatics center? Say no to taxpayer funding

May 5, 2013 

I understand that large projects like water parks seem to always look for taxpayer sources of revenue to finance them. I believe that if it's truly a good idea, then let's let private money build it.

As I look around the area it appears that many of our tax-supported, non-necessary facilities require additional monies each year just to keep them afloat, pardon the pun.
