It may become more expensive to work out, swim and bowl at Virda swimming and sports center in the future. For example, the entrance fee for an adult who wants to use the swimming pool may be raised from 50 to 60 Swedish crowns.
– The tariffs should be reviewed continuously. Partly because we have an inflation rate that makes money less worthwhile, and partly because the swimming pool is now five years old. The guarantees have expired and then all repair costs end up on us, says Martin Sallergård, leisure manager at Alvesta municipality, to Smålandsposten.
The Alvesta Culture and Leisure Committee has tabled the proposal and will now investigate whether it will become a reality.
