The Dalles Need a pool plan
To the editor:
I agree with all the editorials supporting the pool. It is a nice project and important to a select group of citizens. I may have missed the business plan presentation about how to pay for the pool without it coming directly out of the tax payers pockets. It seems easy enough to create a business plan that projects monthly and annual attendance. That number multiplied by a modest fee associated to the user would be potential annual revenue. This income coupled with a percentage of the revenue created from the concessions sales should project a bond retirement schedule.
Until I see a plan other than a give me plan..... I am very dubious about lending support; we are better off with what we have.
