AGO 1956 NO. 239 > Apr 2 1956

Chapter 67.20 RCW, which empowers separately organized park districts to acquire land for swimming pools, to build, operate and maintain swimming pools, to enact police regulations therefor and to contract with other governmental units for conducting a recreation program, does not increase the power of a metropolitan park district organized pursuant to chapter 35.61 RCW so as to permit such a district to create local improvement district for the construction of a swimming pool. Chapter 67.20 RCW does not empower a first class city, either independently or jointly with a county and school district, to form a local improvement district for financing the construction of a swimming pool, where part of the area to be benefited by the improvement and thereby assessed therefor, lies outside the city limits and within the area of the county and/or the school district.
