I don't trust a word any of our elected officials say when it comes to how our taxpayers money will be spent. I don't have to go to any public meeting to hear their BS. lies lies and more lies, with their supporters at these meeting giving their opinions on how great this will be, to bad you don't get to be the only ones voting.

DUH!!!! that will NOT solve the problem.
the city council IS the problem.
voting down the tax and voting out the council is the ONLY solution to our problems.$1 million out of existing taxes will build a fine pool.
have you not noticed that city officials DO NOT listen to the people and DO ignore their votes?
did you not notice we were misled to believe the last tax was to save our hospital and we voted in good intent for that, only to find we were misled by the council fine print and rhetoric.
folks believing in and electing this council, the council's utter failure to use common sense and listen to the people, their lack of smart sensible leadership while pushing personal agendas, is OUR shame, and something to cry over.
DUH!!!!!!! I guess you don't know what you are talking about. Who do you think the city council is? The PEOPLE OF POCAHONTAS! Common sense would say, you like to bark up a tall tree. Perry Mason would say, your a lot of talk and no bit. Why don't you get off your chair and donate your time helping our community , Children and our old people . Then yourself would have common sense..

i've donated more time than you'll ever know to our community.
if i lived in the city i would have run for the council the last few terms.

we obviously need new folks on the council who will do as the voters wish and voted for, rather than their personal agendas.

they also need to use more common sense when proposing such unreasonable tax and spend measures for something that will be used by a small minority and cost everyone another 1% on their purchases. they should have cut the water park costs by more than half, rather than inflating it another $1.5 mil.
if you opened your eyes you would see that this council has proven by their actions to be out of touch with a majority of THE PEOPLE OF POCAHONTAS.

I have a problem with your views, for starter, with yourself. Move into the city limits and make a different. Run for office as city council or even for mayor! Instead of judging others with your words of writing. You are also one person as you pointed out to me. One vote, One believe and One word. The city council is giving the voters a choice if they want or not to want 1 cent sale tax for a short time, money will be spent for a great calls. Now I do agree with your statement on cut the water park costs by more than a half. Just have the swimming pools and water park in whole, not other things as meeting rooms a warm tubs.. I do see for new restrooms and changing rooms and a kitchen for events. Come and help on the figures on and the size of a water park that you would like? Move to town, or come to the town meetings to show your support ! Hope to see you there soon. Thanks Perry Mason

Wait a minute... The city council effectively OVERTURNED the vote of the people REJECTING ProMed. So the council chose PROMED again anyway, against the peoples vote. How can ANYONE trust the council to do the will of the people? They have a bad track record.
If the tax is defeated, the council will pass an emergency ordinance, and find a way to tax you 'til you bleed. And there's NOTHING you can do about it, they've said so, and proved it
yep

You people just want a retirement village . Look what the same complex done for Paragould. What alot of you are not seeing is if these 2 taxes pas the 2% hamburger tax goes away so you are trading a 2% tax for a 1% tax

the 2 cent hamburgler tax is not the same as a 1 cent sales tax.
Paragould has 3 times the population of pokey = more money, need, and usage.
