You are right I am beating a dead horse. I do not live in Alice, thus I did not feel it was my place to fight the issue at the time.

Hello Mr. Witty...we all will be dealing with this "money pit"!! Where do you think the extra $$$ will come from when it's time to pay the piper? Tax Payers! This thing has not been built, so therefore there really is time to scale it back or make changes. You really are not too bright are you??

no it will never make the money back it took to make it. Thats why Dorelle will never be mayor in Alice. She doesnt know how to be fiscally responsible.

Look at the Nueces county complex with it's gun shows,peddler shows, etc. They were celebrating because it only lost $850,000 last year. Best year ever. Normally it loses $1,3000,000.00.

Thats who I blame for this. Alice swimteam and dorrella. How stupid she is to have partnered up with AISD. Aisd is a loser. They always have been and they always will be.That is why they are always in the news paprr trying to get tax money and always getting regected by thr voters. Its not like they arent given money to run a successful school, its that they over spend their budget and now that dbass dorrella when and partnered up with that joke of an organi zation and ended up dragging the city in; along with a 12 something million dollar pric tag.

True, both the school and the Boys club looked into this whole natnatorium idea, and found it too expensive. The city came along and now they claim it's a doable, dollar-wise, good deal. Pure politics, and Dorrella is one of the key players. For this reason I won't be voting for her! I think most folks had no issue with constructing an Olympic-size swimming pool; however, I just find it hard to fathom how we, the taxpayers, will be able to afford the yearly upkeep on an natnatorium. I love the idea; but our roads are crap, and we got eyesores like the old HEB building, the old hospital, etc, that need to be torn down. We barely could keep up with the upkeep for the old Anderson Park pool. How on earth will be able to afford the constant maintenance on a huge indoor pool? We just need to scale this vision back, at least that's my opinion.

the city will loose money on this project. dorella does not know the value of money.
her company, as she calls it is bankrupt. now, i guess she plans on doing the same for the city.
god help us if she is elected as mayor. hopefully, if she does she has already done enough damage and the council will have better sense as to going along with her dumb ideas.
fixing our streets and getting housing, those are the two most important things she should be looking at.
i, know her personally and i, have always wondered how people vote for her. she is not as smart as she thinks she is.

To the new elected city council you were elected to do what is best for the city, with that said your top priority should be to STOP the natatorium.
