I’m a regular user of the Seaside Empire Park and Recreation District facilities, and have heard all of the excitement regarding the expansion. We are a retired couple, on a fixed income and another addition to our taxes is a burden.
Has the commission assigned with this expansion exhausted all options of federal grants before putting this on the ballot this November? I, personally, have investigated grants and found several for a smaller community such as Seaside. I think it would be less expensive to hire a grant writer, and use the money we have already paid in taxes, than make us pay anew.
