Why locate the Community Center at the original Jennie Jaynes Stadium property?

How was the Heckart Community Center paid for?

The City of Sedalia utilized a bond to pay for the Community Center. The principle payments to repay the bond will be made utilizing proceeds from the 1/8 cent sales tax and the Capital Improvements Tax. The interest has been paid as a contribution to the project by Sue Heckart.

What is Sue Heckart’s contribution to the HCC project?

Sue Heckart brought her parents’ dream of a Community Center in Sedalia to life with her extremely generous donation of paying the interest on the bonds that the city has used to build the Community Center. Without her generosity, the Community Center would not have been able to come to reality.
