I'm glad to see that our elected officials have shown some brains in closing the poor people pool. They said it was costing more then it took in and was in much needed repair. Maybe they will get rid of some of the other pet projects that are costing the tax payers more then they take in.

It is the pool at the fairgrounds. They can't afford to keep it open because of all the city employees on the payroll and police force. It's a shame and an embarrassment to this community.

across the country ,...states , cities and small local and municipalities will be forced to cut back on all services and programs ,

thanks to the FAT and over generous pension plans the public employee unions have demanded over the past 20 years ,..

within the next 10 years - 100% of ALL tax revenue will go to retirement programs -at the expense of essential services

The only job growth around here seems to be on the backs of the tax payer. It's not how do we save money, but rather how do we spend it all and get more. Our county is a great example of mismanagement of taxpayer money. Establishment dems and repubs are the same.....not a dimes worth of difference in them and they run the county and city just like the country........spend spend spend.......tax tax tax.

Our Water Depts merged. A merger is to be able to cutback. They kept everyone. All these people are receiving health insurance, retirement and a salary. Our Police Dept has many more officers than needed. They all have their own car and they even drive it back and forth to work from home. For years the dept had 2-3 police cars. Think of the expense of insurance, maintence, and fuel. All of this cost money. Remember we have Ky State Police here, a Sheriff's Dept., and City Police. Do we need all this? Does it really make a difference? Is is worth their salary, health insurance, hazardous duty retirement, uniform and equipment cost, and don't forget all the vehicles?

Everyone for years have complained that Columbia does not have anything to do for the kids. Way to go Columbia!!! I say cut back on all the city employees and spend for the kids and community. No one would ever miss 2 or 3 people in city hall. No one would ever miss 2-3 police officers. No one would ever miss 2-3 people on the water/gas depts. There are going to be alot of people/kids to miss the pool!!!

I remember as a young person going to the pool when they had a turd alert in the baby pool. They let the kids get back in when they had fished it out. They always closed the pool when the fair came to town, so the carnies would'nt get in our water hole.

They closed the pool not to save money, but to spend it somewhere else.
