YMCA Receives Some Financial Help

A financially strapped southern Kentucky YMCA is getting some help to stay open.

The Somerset YMCA Director says the city has agreed to buy the center's property, and then lease it back to them.

The YMCA had an outstanding debt of more than two million dollars.

The director blames the money problems on a lack of pledges and donations, but says with the city buyout, the facility will not close and will continue to operate.
