Prairie City Soccer League is losing it’s soccer complex on the airport property at the end of next year. They had a lot of time to raise money for their own new complex. They claimed in a proposal from 2013 to have over 3000 kids participating.
Keep in mind the Pony League Fields across the street were built entirely with private dollars.
PCSL evidently didn’t want to own and control their own complex. Normal is happy to fund more entertainment and therefore control more entertainment dollars:
If taxpayers don’t change who they vote for . . .
they will own a soccer complex. I wonder if PCSL didn’t want to own a complex because they wanted taxpayers on the hook for building and maintenance?
The answer is pretty obvious, the question is WHY?
I remember the presentation they gave. People from all over the Midwest would flock here for tournaments. The facility would be state of the art!
Why would any group voluntarily surrender autonomy to government?
Sure you want your kids playing soccer?
How much will taxes be raised to build it?
