How about they have fundraisers and accept donations? It will take a while, but they’ll get there. I seem to remember there being a similar situation at the library several years ago. I used to walk by the “thermometor” that was staked in the front lawn showing their goal and what they were currently were up to. How about adding $1 to the price of all tickets, and any other fees they charge? Don’t people pay a fee to set up at the farmers market? Add a dollar.How about the booths set up during wheat fest? Add a dollar. There’s also people usually in there for Halloween during trick-or-treat down the street. Add a dollar. That way the people paying for most of it, will be those that use it the most.

An air conditioned facility that holds various regional concerts/events. An air conditioned facility, but other than that keep it status quo. Nothing more. Public funds can be put to better use than air conditioning Memorial. A wrecking ball in the middle of it with bricks falling this way and that. View Resultslast_img read more
