Pool users should pay all costs

I can’t see why my property taxes should go up to support swimming pool and other facilities I don’t use! If we want to use a state park we pay $10 per visit or get a pass for a year for $30 to use these state parks.

Why vote for the pool levy? Just have users pay and leave non-users alone. We who don’t use should not pay for or support parks and pools. There is a $5 optional charge for renewal of license plates for state parks and it’s your choice to pay of not. If you want to use, pay up!

We are in a recession where our income is getting smaller and smaller. So why should I have to pay for something I’m not using? I don’t swim so let those who use it pay.
