Walnut Hills residents who want to keep a YMCA facility open in their neighborhood have until today to respond to a deal that will do that.
A couple Cincinnati Council Members worked on the agreement with YMCA officials.
Wendell Young said it keeps the Melrose Y open for two more years with additional hours and funding.
In 2015, the community can take over the facility if it doesn't like the Y's plan for it.
Some Cincinnati Council Members have serious problems with the subcontractors working on a major economic development project near the University of Cincinnati campus.
Cecil Thomas and Wendell Young visited the USquare at the Loop construction site last week and talked to some of the workers.
The council members alleged some of the subcontractors are not paying workers the state mandated prevailing wage and the employees are not paying city income taxes.
They said that's cost the city about $500,000 so far.
