To the Editor:

I have been sitting here trying to figure out how to say what I want to say, and I guess I will just say it. I am still upset about the indoor swimming pool situation. I feel, as a citizen of Mitchell, we should be given another chance to vote on it since we did not get the whole truth on the expenses.

Why they did not check things out better regarding the maintenance part of it is beyond me. I feel that the people wanting it really came out and lied about so many things. Why should the citizens of Mitchell pay that much money for a few people to use it? If there are only an average of 100 kids on the swim team, they have been doing fine the way they are.

As I said again, we need another vote. In a recent paper, it says the City Council has approved another $590,000 for the pool architect and the pool will expected to cost $7 million to $7.5 million. Again, where it is coming from to be paid?

They say no taxes will be raised; well I hate to say, the citizens were not born yesterday to believe that comment. I have spoken to a lot of people, and each and every one has said, "I don't know how it passed, because I sure didn't vote for it." So how did it pass? This may not be the best letter, but I think I said what I wanted to say.
