City preps for first year of operation costs
The city of Powell is preparing to navigate uncharted waters as it operates the Powell Aquatic Center in its premier year.
With no history of swimmers' usage or operating costs, city leaders are setting up a budget based on their best estimates. The proposed 2010-11 budget, which takes effect July 1, estimates the pool's first-year operating costs at $829,728.
