A recent trip to Sacramento by officials from Cudahy to raise money for a swimming complex was unsuccessful. The officials were told there is no money for the project left in this year's state budget, Assistant City Manager Maynard G. Law said.
Law, Mayor John O. Robertson and Councilman Tom Thurman met with state Department of Parks and Recreation acting Director Les McCargo and Sen. Bill Greene (D-Los Angeles), whose 27th District includes Cudahy.
"We were told that there is no money left in the budget this fiscal year (July 1 through June 30, 1988) for recreational projects," Law said.
The city will continue to seek funds from other sources, including private donations, Law said. The city has raised more than $300,000 through various state-funded grants, and estimates that it will take at least $1.3-million more to build the complex.
The city of 20,000 does not have a swimming pool, and officials want one for youth recreation.
