Salina Pool Supporters Seek Donations

By  | 

SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ Supporters of a Salina sales tax increase to
help build a new aquatic center are being asked to contribute to
the campaign.

The treasurer for Citizens for an Improved Salina, John Brucker, said that a little less than $500 has been raised so far. The funds would used for such things as buying advertising and yard signs.

Voters in the Nov. 4 election will decide whether to approve or reject a 0.40 percent sales tax. Of that, 0.15 percent would be used to pay for the estimated $12.5 million aquatic park. The remaining 0.25 percent is a renewal of the quarter-cent sales tax that's set to expire in 2010.

The aquatic park would be built south of the Bicentennial Center.
