City ends agreement with YMCA

City leaders said it's a money-saving decision

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - There's been a change in plans when it comes to who will manage the soon-to-be-opened Kingsport Aquatic Center.

The Kingsport Board of Mayor and Alderman voted Tuesday night to terminate its management agreement with the Greater Kingsport Family YMCA.

City leaders said it's just a money-saving decision and is no reflection on the YMCA's ability to manage.

The city plans to continue its partnership with the YMCA and members will also continue to have access to all the aquatics facilities as part of their membership.
