Madras Aquatic Center Will Ask for Additional Levy This May


Last November, they voted the request down by a couple hundred votes.

 

So they are asking again for voters to approve an additional 40 cents per one thousand dollars of assessed property value -- to fully fund the center.

 

It would cost about $40 dollars for a 100-thousand dollar home in Madras.

 

The Director of the MAC, Bobby DeRoest says this levy would help them meet expenses - which they current don't do.

 

"When they did build the center, there was anticipated a little boom here, but then there was a housing bust, they thought the prison was going to bring in a lot of people.  But like a lot of places, the recession kind of put everything on hold.  So the money anticipated was a lot less than what was brought in."

 

If approved, the levy would be in addition to the 25 center per one thousand dollars of assessed value.  Collectively, it would be around 65 dollars a year for an average home in Madras.
