Press Release: Argyle Commits $75,000 Funding For Aquatic Center At Former YMCA Location

The Municipality of Argyle (Argyle), in a special council meeting, committed initial funding of $75,000 towards the restoration of aquatic services at the former YMCA location, currently owned by the Town of Yarmouth. The Town’s decision to purchase this location preserved the opportunity to restore the desired service for our region.

The $75,000 is an initial commitment, focused on the costs of re-opening the former YMCA while considering additional costs of startup and COVID-19 safety protocols. “The cost of operation of the current location is yet to be determined, with many possible scenarios impacting that cost, says Warden Muise. “Our objective here is to get the work started and let our residents and our funding partners know that we are financially onboard.”
