Miles City can't afford a pool?
Every dinky little town here in Kansas has a concrete outdoor pool. The population here? less than 900. Five miles down the road, there is another town with a concrete pool, population less than 200. Eight miles further there is yet another little town of less than 500 people and guess what, they have a concrete pool. If you go the other way, there is a town 12 miles away that has a concrete pool. Their swimming season runs from late May until mid August. It isn't that Miles City can't afford a pool; Miles City doesn't want a pool.
And if you want to talk about an indoor pool, the big town here, with a whopping population of 3600 has a nice indoor pool, operated by the technical college, the city and the hospital. Oh, and they are building a new and larger concrete outdoor pool.
And if there wasn't enough swimming opportunities, there is a lake between three of these towns.
Miles City doesn't want a pool. They can afford it if they really want one.
