News for gym rats

Posted By on Thu, Feb 25, 2010 at 4:38 PM

My bellyaching about War Memorial Park had at least one positive response. The city is apparently thinking about reopening the fitness center on Sunday. Sunday hours were lost in city budget cutting as directors worked feverishly to support continued taxpayer subsidies for the chamber of commerce.

Said Deputy City Manager Bryan Day:

Staff at the fitness center has been tracking membership and attendance; as well as listening to member comments and feel that it is a good idea to reopen on Sundays.  We hope that increased attendance and other operational savings will cover the cost of re-opening on Sundays.  The good news is that the fitness center does have a positive cash balance and we can cover this cost if necessary for 2010.  Nothing is definite yet, but we are also looking a few small improvements to the center and hope to make some final decisions in the next thirty days.
