Letter: Let residents vote on idea of an indoor pool for NOTL
Letter to the editor. File

Dear editor:

Your Oct. 12 editorial, “An indoor swimming pool for NOTL,” was an excellent opinion piece.

It was well-articulated in a non-threatening way and I wholeheartedly concur with your observations.

As The Lake Report has cautioned us townspeople, our town is about to face five to 10 costly years, as we grow and repair our critical infrastructure.

Also, the growth of our town will soon require that we look at a permanent, full-time fire department, which could require a $1,000 annual assessment to each and every property in town.

An indoor pool is a wonderful idea, but the “must-have” components of our town budget have to be funded before those things that make our lives better.

Before an indoor pool is considered, I ask Niagara-on-the-Lake town council to put the idea before the property owners for a vote, after presenting the true cost involved in building and maintaining this truly wonderful idea.
