The Carougeois decide on June 9 on the aquatic center. A complex which includes four pools: one of 25 meters, a paddling pool, a leisure pool and one for activities. All for more than 74 million francs, which raises eyebrows on the right, which brought about a referendum. Stéphanie Lammar, the administrative advisor in charge of sport in the City of Carouge, was the guest of Béatrice Rul, on Radio Lac, at 7:30 a.m.

This new aquatic center will cost 74 million francs. The question of financing arises…. A future tax increase?

“We must separate the question of investments from that of operations. These 74 million are substantial but are amortized over thirty years. That is 2.5 million francs, per, which will impact the budget of Carouge. The operating budget of Carouge is of 134 million francs, so these 2.5 million francs are, in my opinion, completely absorbable. Per inhabitant, this represents nine francs per month. Carouge has very important development projects like the PAV, so these questions of taxation go. arise and it is not the aquatic center, as such, which will increase taxes.”

“This aquatic center will represent a cost of nine francs per month, per inhabitant”

It’s not just the people of Carouge who will use this aquatic center. It is true that we can estimate that this infrastructure has a more cantonal than municipal scope…

“In Carouge, there are 24,000 inhabitants but 25,000 jobs, so 25,000 people who pay taxes without necessarily living in Carouge. They will also participate in financing the swimming pool. We toured the others municipalities but none wanted to participate. This is the principle of municipal autonomy.
