Quote: "the nonprofit would be sitting pretty with $400,000 in profits every year. Those leftovers could subsidize swimming memberships for low-income families, Nunn said."
How could anyone take seriously an estimate like that? A free membership costs essentially nothing. The pools have to be kept at the right temperature and cleaned regardless of the number of swimmers. Showers for swimmers would cost something ... but nothing close. Use of existing equipment would cost what?
In Eureka there is little likelihood of a profit for this nonprofit? Where are they going to get enough regular paying customers ... and what are they going to have to charge them? A small town, far from decent transportation or easy access. Not easy to sell the idea of hoards of people making the trip for a swim meet!
