Are you listening? We all want a new pool but not for $17 million.
Yankton cannot afford a third grocery store.
Yankton cannot afford a JC Penney store, a Kmart store or a mall, and other stores that have closed.
Yankton cannot afford to take care of their roads and bridges.
Yankton cannot afford new elementary schools that really need lots of TLC.
So we spend $17 million on a pool that we use for three months. We could spend $7 or $8 million for one just as nice as Vermillion’s and keep the other $7 million for a new elementary school that’s used for nine months.
So you are not listening!
