FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Voters will consider the idea in March, but it seems most members of the Fayetteville City Council oppose the idea of building a $3 million aquarium as part of a new city park.

The Fayetteville Observer (https://bit.ly/1O0u1FM ) reports that some council members are concerned about the long-term costs of the aquarium. Others don’t like the proposed location while some council members view an aquarium as a luxury, not a necessity.

Voters in March will consider borrowing $35 million for parks that includes the aquarium. If approved, the bond would mean property owners would pay about 2 cents more a year for every $100 in assessed value of their property.
