Fairmont Community Center Foundation wants to move forward
“It’s a decision at city council to determine whether it will move forward with this project or not.”
FAIRMONT, Minn. (KEYC) - The Fairmont Area Community Center Foundation had three tasks.
The first was to oversee the private fundraising with an initial goal of $6 million, secure the YMCA as a partner and present operational plans to the city council, and to date those things have been accomplished.
Some members of the council were still concerned about the possible tax impact.
“We expect to reach the goal in securing the additional necessary funds for the community center,” said the FACC Foundation said in a statement. “Any tax implications or details of city funding need to be addressed by the city.”
Resident Angie Toothaker asked the council members to listen to its community.
“You know, I’ve been against this but I’ve researched,” said Toothaker. “I’ve gotten my answers and there’s really no reason I can say no at this point.”
KEYC reached out to city council members, but did not hear back.
