Officials at the YMCA and the fundraising group asked the county for a $3-million donation to the project, but commissioners agreed to a lower amount of $1-million.

The county will use some American Rescue Plan Act dollars for their contribution.

The regional outdoor water park is estimated to cost $15-million and depending on the fundraising campaign, construction could begin as soon as next spring.
