Upgrades needed if there's to be YMCA deal

Last week council members were presented with hard data detailing the potential and the cost of such a partnership.
"There is a lot of good information and reason to feel very positive about a partnership with the YMCA,” City Manager David Vaughn said after city and YMCA officials and some residents were briefed on the results of a marketing study conducted by the Atlanta, Ga. company Four Square Research, Inc.
Council members and city officials have doggedly sought a solution that would reduce the approximately $500,000 yearly average subsidy the city has had to use to operate Galloway-Hammond the past several years.
About $415,000 had to be transferred from the city’s general fund in Fiscal Year 2012 to subsidize the costs associated with Galloway-Hammond and the FY 2013 budget includes a $483,000 transfer, Vaughn said.
