Complete Crystal Pool and Fire Hall Reports

Open Victoria has obtained the complete consultants’ reports on the city’s Fire Hall #1 and Crystal Pool. The reports — neither of which are on the City’s website — suggest that both buildings should be replaced, at a cost of at least $15 million for a new fire hall, and around $20 million for a new pool and fitness facility. How will we be able to pay for all this, when the City has nearly maxed out its manageable debt? Read our summaries of the reports, and get ready to ask some questions of your elected officials.
