Money for pool can't be used for anything else
To the Sun:
This is in response to Mr. Donnie Riddell's questions in a recent letter to the editor.
The money to pay for the pool over 25 years is coming out of the capital fund and can't be used for pay raises for city employees.
A percentage of tax revenue goes to the general fund, and a percentage goes into the capital fund for things like police cars, fire trucks, dump trucks and other things that are capital items.
We got $1.4 million from the state for the pool, and that is all we can use it on. We have to spend it by June 30, 2010 or give it back to the state.
