Just eight days left to vote for or against a new Vincennes City Pool bond issue. Woops - it's not a pool - it's a Water Feature. That is correct. It IS a proposal to borrow money - 3.8 million - to build a new Water Feature at the site of Rainbow Beach Pool.
Three points: 1.) The current Rainbow Beach Pool is toast. It's done. Over. Almost nobody disputes this. The Parks Department did a great job of keeping it going long past its effective unsefulness. (That is one of our traits around these parts...)
2.) The project should be voted on by registered voters within the city limits. With a vote, there should be no griping after the fact - what ever the outcome.
3.) Quality of life issues ARE important to our community. And the pool - woops Water Feature - WILL help to improve our quality of life.
Early voting continues at the Post Office and the polls will open in all 16 Vincennes City Polling Places a week from tomorrow - May 7th.
