Goderich Y Makes Budget Request Of $800,000

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Y officials say fitness centre upgrades at the Maitland Rec Centre is a big-ticket item this year

It may still look relatively new, but the Maitland Recreation Centre in Goderich needs repairs and equipment upgrades.

Those are a major feature of a budget request YMCA officials made, in an appearance before Town Council earlier this month.

Y Regional Manager of Operations for Southwestern Ontario, Lindsay Whittaker says the ask of over $800 thousand is intended to cover capital and operational needs at MRC, Memorial Arena and Bannister Park.

Whittaker adds the fitness centre at the Maitland is among the Y's most popular features, and the equipment is becoming more difficult to maintain as it ages.

Goderich Council was to have deliberated the Town's operating budget on Tuesday, but that has been postponed as Town Hall remains closed over concern surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.

Council's next regular meeting will be held on April 6th, while a date for the budget meeting is to be determined.
