A questionable "swimming poll" for Angers town hall majority

The Angers project of a play swimming pool could be symbolic of a gap between the under-standing of some repre-sentatives about the economic reality and the reality itself. Located in the new district Les Hauts de Saint-Aubin, the sports and play complex, due to open in November 2013, was designed this year by Angers town hall. The project, claims Angers city, could allow the inhabitants and other users, to take care of their health... a stake for the society as a whole. But another point is at stake, the finances of inhabitants can allocate to such a scheme : 34 millions €.

The appro-priateness is openly questioned by local medias because Angers inhabitants have recently, and will next year, put up with tax increases. According to the website dedicated to the scheme, "Thanks to the expected traffic, the profits will reduce costs for the tax payer". But, what will going on if the tax payer has not the sufficient resources to attend the swimming pool?

If the investments Angers city has yet implemented or plans for the years to come are desirable (among them the new Maine banks reconquest, a second trolley line and a very ambitious real estate program), inhabitants look worry about their endurable financing in harh economic times when, first of all, savings become a priority.
