LIVE FROM THE KDKA BROADCAST CENTER IN DOWNTOWN PITTSBURGH, THIS IS KDKA TV NEWS AT 5:00. THE YMCA OF GREATER PITTSFORD HAVE ANNOUNCED IT’S FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY. THEY REDUCED STAFF AND BENEFITS. THEY CANNOT KEEP UP WITH THE COST. LOOK AT THAT ME FOR YOUR LOCAL FACILITY? PAUL MARTINO IS WITH THE DETAILS. Reporter: THEY ARE STRUGGLING WITH AN ANNUAL DEFICIT OF $1 MILLION. IT CAN’T AFFORD TO OPERATE ALL THE BUILDINGS IT’S IN. THEY ARE HAVING TROUBLE PAYING THEIR BILLS. IN THE SHORT TIME, WHAT DOES IT MEAN? THE DOWNTOWN SHOP IS CLOSING. SO IS THE ONE IN DELMONT. AS A PARADE OF PEOPLE ENTER THE DOWNTOWN YMCA, THE GOT THE NEWS. IS CLOSING IN A MONTH. IT’S A SHAME. THERE’S NOWHERE ELSE TO GO EXCEPT FOR UPTOWN. IT’S A BIT OF A WALK FOR US. WE MIGHT LOOK INTO GOING TO THE GYM INSTEAD. THERE WAS A GREAT WORKOUT FACILITY. THE WHY — ONE IS FACING BIG OBSTACLES. THERE WERE DECLINING MEMBERSHIPS. TOO MANY COSTING FACILITIES ENCOMPASSING FROM PRIVATE GYMS. IT’S ALWAYS BUSY AND THERE. IT’S REALLY INCREDIBLE AND VERY SAD THAT THE RENT WOULD BE SO HIGH SO AS NOT TO LAUGH SOMETHING SO GOOD LIKE THIS TO BE HERE. IT IS INCREDIBLE THAT LED TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT WEDNESDAY MORNING. THIS IS A NECESSARY STEP TO ENABLE US TO INVEST IN THE YMCA OF THE FUTURE. THE BANKRUPTCY FILING STATES THAT THEY OWE MORE THAN 200 CREDITORS BETWEEN $10 MILLION AND $50 MILLION. AS FOR THE FIFTH AVENUE SITE, EXACT NUMBERS WEREN’T AVAILABLE. A HEFTY LEASE IS WAY TOO HEAVY TO LIFT. WE WILL HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER OPTION. WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT. THAT FIFTH AVENUE Y EMPLOYS ABOUT 100 PEOPLE THERE. MOST OF THEM ARE PART-TIMERS. IT’S NOT CLEAR HOW MANY OF THEM WILL GET LAID OFF. THEY MAY GET OTHER POSITIONS WITH THE Y. YOU MIGHT THINK THAT A BANKRUPTCY FOR A YMCA IS A USUAL. THERE WERE BANKRUPTCIES IN MILWAUKEE AND MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN. ALSO NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDA. THERE ARE OTHERS. COMING UP NEW AT 6:00, WHAT IT MEANS FOR AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS AND FOR SUMMER CAMPS.
