Comment on Leaked letter casts light on town council pool fiasco by Anonymous.

Is there really a viable alternative to the YMCA? I’d imagine that the YMCA is the only obvious entity with the resources (staff, skill and logistically) to operate a modern aquatic centre 1500km from the nearest capital city. You pay peanuts, you get monkeys (look at what happened with the landfill debacle).
How many visitors using the pool pay full fees? People don’t want to pay the fees and expect the Territory and Federal Governments to fund their lifestyles it’s been happening forever. Does the town really appreciate how lucky we are to have such a facility for an urban population of (27,000 depending on the day of the week)? Please, Alice Springs, support our pool!
