MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot residents are deciding whether to approve an $88 million aquatic and recreation center.

Tuesday was the final day of voting on a tax system amendment to pay for the 450,000-square foot center. Residents would pay higher city sales taxes but lower property taxes.

The proposed Minot Aquatics and Recreation Center would have a water park, a 50-meter competition pool and a warm water therapy pool. It also would include a multisport turf area, a 400-meter track, an indoor playground, a child care center, a senior citizen event area and fitness equipment.

The Ward County Auditor’s Office reports that 2,135 Minot voters already cast ballots during early voting last week.
