CLARKSTON, WA - The Asotin County Commission is publicly backing their support of Proposition-2 for the upcoming General Election.

A "yes" on prop-2 would take two cents for every ten dollars you spend in Washington as a Public Facilities District tax. That money would solely fund the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center for maintenance and repairs.

"Since we enjoy such a wide support of patronage from all over the Valley and all over the area," said Asotin County Commissioner, Brian Shinn. "People come here and spend money and that money helps support the operation of the aquatic center."

The two tenths of a one-percent sales tax proposition was created due to lack of funding for the aquatic center. Last year, they had to dip into reserve funding to keep the pools open.
