Madras Aquatic Center Levy Passes

Voters approved a five year operating levy for the center.

 

The same issue went down to defeat last November, but this week it was approved.

 

MAC Operations Manager, Carolyn Harvey says she was cautiously optimistic about its passage this time around.

 

"I heard a lot more positive comments.  When we went out for the vote in November, I had just been in the position for a month.  Also this was not a general election.  And the MAC PAC also got the message out that we really do care about our community and what the MAC can do for it."

 

The operating levy will raise an estimated 1.2 million dollars.

 

In addition to keeping the facility open year-round, it will also help expanding recreation programs like youth and adult basetkball, soccer and softball.
