YMCA talks move forward

Pulaski Town Council, Pulaski County Board of Supervisors and officials with Hensel Eckman YMCA joined together Tuesday night for discussion of the “Y’s” future in the community, but no action was taken.
At the beginning of the meeting, Pulaski Mayor Jeff Worrell made it clear the purpose of the meeting was not to take public comment or debate whether the county should move forward with an indoor recreation center at Dublin.
Suzanne Wantland, executive director of the “Y,” and Dave Adkins, president of the “Y’s” board, gave a quick rundown on the facility’s financial status, noting they are predicting a $5,000 per month shortfall in the coming fiscalyear.
Wantland said the “Y” is looking to “reinvent ourselves to see what needs we can meet in the community” in an effort to address its financial issues and make it more attractive to new membership.
County Administrator Peter Huber said the goal of the indoor wellness/recreation center being proposed for the TMD Friction plant is to not do any harm to the “Y,” but rather use the “Y” to provide services, such as swimming pool access, that won’t be available at the TMD site for several phases.
Although the TMD plant was supposed to go on the auction block in late January, Huber said the business has agreed to give the county until the end of February to evaluate its budget situation before making a decision on the proposal to buy the plant.
“By no means is this a done deal,” he said.
If the board decides to go ahead with the center, Huber said it is the board’s desire to have a portion of the facilities in operation within about six months.
