Voters in Fort Dodge will go to the polls today to decide on a new aquatic center. The center would be located on the northeast side of Fort Dodge. The total cost of the center would amount to 8.95-million dollars for the city to borrow the funds for the project.
The center would feature an eight lane lap pool with diving well and slides, a shallow pool for young children filled with water toys and a bucket that pours water on bathers, a splashdown pool with three large slides plus a channel called the Lazy River.
The center would open in 2010 if approved by the Fort Dodge voters. If approved the Expo Pool of Fort Dodge would be torn down. The bond needs 60 percent passage. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
