Raytown Park Board Special Meeting

The Raytown Park Board met Tuesday, Sept. 23rd and the main agenda item was the budget.  The main topic for the night’s discussion was the closing of Super Splash.  A previous article on the closing of Super Splash garnered record interest from the public, but the only audience for this meeting was the media, Mayor Bower and Ward 4 Alderman Pat Ertz.

The discussion was extremely informative, but the condensed version is…

Parks Board: We can’t afford Super Splash, it needs too much repair and is not making enough money to justify the expenses.

Mayor and Alderman Ertz:  Super Splash is an important amenity for the Raytown Community.

Parks Board: We can’t afford it.

Mayor Bower: We may be able to help (come up with some money)

Parks Board: We might reconsider.

The main spokesperson for the Parks Board was former Judge Mike Hannah.  There were a lot of details on what needed to be fixed and how there was not a lot of time to start the long sequence of events needed to allow Super Splash to reopen in 2015.

RaytownOnline.com recorded the entire meeting.  The audio is clearly understandable, but at about half way through the meeting, the building heating and cooling unit kicked in with a mighty roar, next to the camera.  This was partially abated by moving the camera away from the vent.
