Joint meeting planned to chart role of YMCA

In an effort to help better define Hensel Eckman YMCA’s role in the community, Pulaski Town Council, Pulaski County Board of Supervisors, and “Y” officials will hold a joint meeting Feb. 2.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in council chambers, prior to town council’s regular monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Council chambers is on the second floor of the municipal building off First Street N.W.
Pulaski Mayor Jeff Worrell requested at last Tuesday’s work session that town staff arrange for council to facilitate a meeting of the two governmental bodies and “Y” officials in light of the county’s proposal to develop a Wellness Center in the former TMD Friction plant at Dublin.
“Y” Director Suzanne Wantland and Board President Bobby Clark told council at the work session it is their intention that the “Y” continue to operate in some capacity even if the county does develop a wellness center of its own. They acknowledged the “Y” has been “struggling” financially.
For the coming year, Adkins said the board of directors is anticipating a $4,000 to $5,000 per month shortfall “all things staying equal.”
In order to better define the “Y’s” future, Wantland said the board would like to meet with officials from the town and county, and with senior and social service organizations, to pinpoint areas of need.
Some have suggested the county put money towards an expansion of the “Y” rather than invest in turning the TMD plant into an indoor recreation center.
