Pool offers community a healthy recreation option

Editor,

You are not seeing campaign posters for the November North Whidbey Park and Recreation District levy this time because there is no money to finance distribution of the needed information. There was $900 donated for the August levy election that allowed volunteers to post signs and banners.

That may not have been enough to convey that the levy in August was a replacement levy not an increased levy. It didn’t pass.

The November levy will still be a replacement levy and will be for all district programs. The pool is the biggest use of levy revenue and is the only public pool on Whidbey Island where those not living in the district can use it by paying an extra fee per use.

The pool is a total community benefit for year-round healthy recreation. This letter to the editor is in place of posters and says vote “yes” for the NWPRD levy which includes the pool.
