The Selah Aquatic Center held a grand opening on Friday. Hundreds of people enjoyed the new recreational pool, lazy-river. There's also a competitive pool as well.

Voters gave thumbs up to a $6.2 million bond in 2015 giving the area a brand new aquatic center that replaced and old pool at Wixson Park. But the new center needs money to operate.

Pool supporters are now hoping for the passage of a six-year maintenance and operations levy that's set to raise $250,000 in the first year to operate the Center. Officials with the Selah Park and Recreation Service Area say for the owner of a home valued at $200,000 the levy would be $37.50 per year.
The issue is on the August ballot. Ballots are due on Primary election day, August 6.
