Close the Only Water Park in Detroit?

Aug 1, 2011

In the week of 100 degree weather, Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano raised the possibility that Detroit’s only water park could be closed! Ficano said the county must make changes because the park doesn’t bring in enough income.

Are they crazy?” voiced one resident at a rally organized to protest. Another resident said she couldn’t believe that they have the nerve after people in the city voted for the parks millage that was to generate 10.6 million dollars a year. She said, “What about all that money? You’ve got the money, do you think we forgot?”

Exactly. Not only did residents vote to tax themselves even further in order to save parks in the city, each child already has to pay $3 just to enter the water park.

It’s obvious this chiseling political scum needs a boot in the rear end to make him remember.
