Local pool is a piece of crap. I think we should build a new pool complex with an indoor lap pool that is usable year round. Don't care about a track or amphitheater personally. I did go to the meeting , where were all you no votes? I know plenty of people who are taking their kids to poplar bluff and Paragould to their water parks. What's wrong with Pocahontas having something decent for a change. I don't mind paying taxes for worthwhile projects. It's the deadbeats and welfare rats that need to have the checks cut off. That's a waste of my taxes. Parks are a good thing.

apples to oranges. poplar bluff's is private owned, paragould is 4 times our size = bigger tax base and more usage.
yep, lets build some multi-million dollar pools so 25-50 folks can use it all winter. how high should we make the slides in that other pool for the 50 kids to use all winter, need 5 or 10 different kinds to keep them from getting bored. heard that surfer dudes want 2 to 3 foot waves in their pool.
why not just go for a 20 cent tax. it's only a couple of little ole dimes more. entertain lots of folks, make EVERYONE happy! build it and they will come, all year long. i know a couple hundred guys that would like and use a racetrack and 4 wheeler park. million or 2 ought to cover it. can you say indoor rodeo! zoos and aquariums are nice for kids, make ours free to draw folks here. paddle boats and fishin would be fun in the summer if we had an 80 acre stocked lake. how about a concert and dance hall that seats a thousand or 2. country and bluegrass on fridays. zz top and skynard as house bands. ziplines everywhere, steamboat rides on the river, paintball city, firing range with with clay pigeon course. 3 18 hole putt putt complex. go carts! build it and they will come, all year long. IT'S ALL GOOD!

yep, he forgot it and a hockey league.
and indoor shuffleboard and horseshoe pits,
and ski/sled slopes with lifts,
all so we can enjoy ourselves and stay in shape without having to swim in heated chlorine pee water.

Simple answers to this are
so you don't have to have a pool party for more than the max that the pool will hold , a few pool parties doesn't justify spending millions of dollars and neither does having extra lanes so that a privileged few can get the race competition over sooner.
They can repair the pool and there won't be any slippery surfaces , so no one will be hurt and no one will be able to SUE the city!
Also the health department didn't close the pool ,call the director and ask her.

thought there was going to be more PUBLIC MEETINGS on this? hope they are not having any PRIVATE meetings? anyone one know? waiting to see what the cost will be for the indoor pool? doing the math that they were asked to give the citzens on repairs vs 6.5 million complex?
