BCC pool
Placeholder Image

Dear Editor,
I don’t personally know any of the BCC Trustees. I can only assume they are educated intelligent individuals.
So I ask then to simply do the math when it comes to the pool issues. Figures don’t lie!
Per the May 17, article in the Great Bend Tribune, five year pool projections: Yearly expense: $69,780, less yearly income - $7,389 = a $62,391 yearly loss. Now, if USD 428 agrees to the $15,000 a year for five years that still leaves a $47,391 loss.
USD 428 stands to lose the most by the pool closing. So why doesn’t USD 428 build a new pool and let BCC use it for free the next, oh say, 20 years?
