The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Marys­town Coun. Dave Bren­ton de­scribed a con­fer­ence call with the YMCA ear­lier this month as pos­i­tive. The town is hop­ing to come to an ar­range­ment with the or­ga­ni­za­tion to oper­ate its new $11.5 mil­lion re­cre­ation com­plex once built.

Coun. Bren­ton, who co-chaired the com­mit­tee that over­saw coun­cil’s ef­fort to lobby govern­ment for fund­ing, noted the YMCA’S main per­son in Canada for open­ing new cen­tres was on the other end of the call.

“Re­ally, our re­quest to them was to give us a typ­i­cal oper­a­tional struc­ture in a part­ner­ship be­tween the ‘ Y’ and the town, and they said they would do that.”

He also in­di­cated con­sul­tants Shep­pard Case should have a de­sign of the fa­cil­ity ready by next Fe­bru­ary or March.
