The Madras Aquatic Center needed to cut expenses, so starting this week they’ll be open fewer hours.  The pool in Madras will be open eleven hours less a week. They are also closing down the month of April. There's a $90,000 budget shortfall and General Manager Bobby Deroest says these cost cutting measures should help. “We're a small community and this facility has large expenses. This facility is too large to be supported by the tax rate at the hours we were offering.” Staff cutbacks and reduced hours are expected to save nearly $40,000. Deroest expects they'll have to ask voters for an increase in the tax rate in future years. The pool opened in 2008 and about 300 people use the facility daily.
