  1. If you click the link and read the article, the input the Sturgeon County is looking for is what level of financial contribution they should be making towards the building and operating of the facility.

  2. People, stop with the pool issue. This article is NOT about what is or isn’t being included in the build. That has already been determined…
    It’s about the structure of financial obligations and how that should look.

  3. It’s a fascinating subject. I would recommend whatever approach minimalizes the impact on taxes and is funded directly by those who use the facility. The cost of living is so high as it is, a person wonders how we can afford yet another thing!

    1. That’s kind of snarky, MN. Regardless of whether an official decision has been as to no pool, they are still ignoring the fact a huge percentage of Morinville residents and county residents want a pool. So, frankly, blow the snark out your ear!

    2. Chelle Jane it is snarky and it is humour.

      The article is not about what should be in it but what level Sturgeon County should contribute to what is being built.

      That is what Sturgeon County is seeking from their residents.

    3. Chelle Jane …the town council has had numerous town meetings in the last few years. The ‘pool topic’ comes up regularly. There is no way Morinville residents can afford to have a pool. This has been proven over and over. No matter how much we want one (and I do), as you have said the cost of living is high…we simply cannot afford a pool.

    4. What I find insulting is the fact that Morinville News takes a lot of time and puts a lot of effort into their articles and nobody actually takes the time to read what is said, they only read the headline.

    5. Crystal Terhorst I know. That wasn’t at issue. I just feel for the people who still want one, and I didn’t think the simple comment pool warranted quite the response it got. Nonetheless, we shall leave it.

    6. Brianna McMow and I would agree. Wwlcome to the world of cyberspace. Albeit that may or may not be the case of the gentleman who said, “POOL!”

  4. Isn’t it a little late for input on investment when the structure is already being built??? Kinda behind the 8 ball here! Investment proceeds should clear before proceeding to see if its options are viable and to whom they fall upon!

  5. We’ll just post the article as a comment to save people clicking a link:

  6. Its hard to even comment on what level of financial contribution they should be making towards the building and operating of the facility when there’s no fricken POOL.
    GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!
