Selah pool levy fails without enough votes
SELAH, Wash. -- It looks like the Selah community will not be getting a new pool any time soon.
Early election results Wednesday showed 56 percent of voters supported the $300,000 one-year tax levy that would help replace the aquatic center at Wixson Park.
However, a 60 percent vote was the minimum needed for it to pass.
City officials said operating the pool would cost at least $400,000, so the board is holding off on any construction.
The two-pool facility was supposed to open next summer.
