Fund swimming pool fees
Sun., Aug. 7, 2016
After hearing of the need for donations to the city’s pools to subsidize fees for underprivileged children, I immediately made a donation to the park fund for that purpose. Afterwards, I came to the realization that the city of Spokane and its council should be able to fund this bit of summer fun without the aid of donations.
Something as simple as allowing children to use the pool system should be a benefit funded by any city the size of Spokane. Why we cannot seem to cover this cost in the city budget is an anomaly to me. I hope the reason isn’t because the children are too young to vote yet. We can do better, Spokane.
