Election letter: Aquatic center -- No

July 24, 2013 

Thank you to Vic Epperly (In Focus, July 14) for an insightful commentary on city pools. I agree with him that we need indoor year-round public facilities for students as well as for public access. Water parks are a private-sector project. Why should our citizens be taxed for a three-month seasonal outdoor facility that many of them would never use?
