Station Editorial: Vote YES on Taylorville Park District Pool Referendum



Posted March 16, 2023


This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president.   The Taylorville Park District Board will put on the April 4th ballot, a referendum to provide some 6-point-5 million dollars towards the construction of a new outdoor swimming pool facility for the Christian County seat.

Park District officials put together a Pool Committee consisting of Taylorville citizens.  That committee worked with an architect specializing in pools on a design concept that would best benefit Taylorville.  They then took that design and finance plan to the Board that approved the design.  A Pool Referendum Committee was then organized to help promote the design and proposed referendum. 

The Pool Referendum Committee is also hoping to raise one-point-5 million dollars locally, to go with the 6-point-5 million that would come from passage of the April 4th ballot initiative.

Park Board officials tell us that if the April 4th referendum passes and the one-point-5 million are raise locally, construction would be at the end of this swim season, with opening day being the start of the 2024 swim season next year.

The Manners Park Pool is one of those quality of life issues for Taylorville.  It's used by those young and old, with people of all abilities including children who learn the skills to safely and responsibly enjoy the water.

Bottom line for a homeowner inside the Taylorville Park District that owns a house assessed at 150-thousand dollars, is an increase of just over 100-dollars per year, and when you break it down, it's just under 9-dollars a month, or just over 2-dollars a week.

I'm voting YES on this Taylorville Park District Manners Park Pool project, and I hope those of you inside the Park District do, too.  

Whether to just swim, or making it part of their reason to move to Taylorville, the Manners Park Pool is truly an asset we need to keep.   The current pool is over 60 years old, and pool officials have gotten all the life they possibly could out of it.

Vote YES for the pool to benefit our town and area for generations to come.

That's our opinion, we welcome yours.   Our e-mail address is editorial@randyradio.com.
