Dear Liberty Township-Powell YMCA supporters:

At a recent Liberty Township Board of Trustees meeting, the board took public comment regarding the state of the Liberty Township-Powell YMCA.  Residents spoke at the meeting addressing their concerns about the failures of the YMCA to serve the community functions provided for in its agreement with Liberty Township.  These failures included, but are not limited to, all of the following: 

1.  Failure to support and maintain a swim team and last-minute termination of the 2020 swim season;

2.  Failure to fairly and adequately support the community and Liberty High School swim team;

3.  Mishandling of the YMCA of Central Ohio’s mandated change in leagues for the 2019 swim season by organizing a new non-competitive swim league and requiring membership of all YMCA of Central Ohio teams; 

4.  Failure to properly maintain the facility and specifically the pool and pool equipment;

5.  Frequent errors in handling the swim team’s funds, specifically inaccurate accounting and unpaid bills, which affected the operations of the swim team and required personal payments from coaches to remedy the situations caused by unpaid bills;

6.  Failure to maintain its own core values of caring, respect, honesty and social responsibility while communicating and dealing with the swim families and coaches;

7.  Inadequate leadership and uninformed decisions effecting the Liberty Township Powell YMCA families, High School, coaches, and swim team members, which failed to take into account the unique differences of the Liberty Township-Powell YMCA from other branches; 

At the conclusion of the meeting, the Liberty Township Board of Trustees asked if others would support investigating whether the Township should consider finding a better community partner than the YMCA to run and maintain the facility.  Finding a better community advocate and supporting the community and High Schools should be priorities for our local facility.  Consequently, we ask you to sign this petition to show support to the Liberty Township Board of Trustees for an investigation on options for improving our local YMCA.
