Supporters of the November ballot measure in Jefferson County to approve additional funding for the Madras Aquatic Center say they hope people will see the big picture of the proposal.

 

Bobby Deroest, General Manager of the "MAC Center" says he hopes the nay-sayers will see that having safe and constructive alternatives for kids can deter problems.  "We’re one community. And we need to support all out programs here. What we're offering is recreation services for the youth of our community, which I think is a good thing to say, it can be preventative as far as the jails go. We’re giving them a safe and a great outlet to utilize their time with."

 

Deroest says they have a "MAC Pac" that is helping get the word out.  He adds that the funding will add about $200,000 for the center to provide more services and "out of the water" programs.

 

The cap limits property taxes to $10 per $1000 assess value of real estate for local government projects and $5 per $1000 for schools.

 

The MAC Center was approved in 2004 for 25 cents and now they want an additional 40 cents.
