Questions about YMCA finances

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

Toledo city leaders have questions about the finances of the Wayman Palmer branch of the YMCA. They say the YMCA plays a vital role in helping Central Toledo families become self-sufficient and productive citizens, but they still want answers.

City leaders are investigating concerns about what YMCA corporate is charging the branch for rent. The City of Toledo owns the building and leases it to Wayman Palmer for just one dollar a year. They want to know if reports that the YMCA is charging Wayman Palmer thousands of dollars for rent are true.

The lease also requires the YMCA to report an itemized statements of what they spend and what they take in to the city. 

Councilman Steve Steel says the YMCA Corporate offices have never turned in any report and he wants to know where the money is going.

The head of Toledo's Division of Parks and Recreation met with the YMCA's Vice President of Operations to discuss those concerns.

The YMCA corporate office declined an interview request, but said that they provided those reports on Thursday morning.

Councilman Steel will hold a meeting on January third to discuss the Wayman Palmer YMCA and he's requested that representatives of the YMCA and city leaders attend.
