The Salt Fork YMCA continues to undergo modifications to update the facility.

On Monday, Dec. 10, the Y had its second and final relighting, according to facility and grounds manager Randy Siebert. The lights in the aquatics area were being replaced.

The exterior and parking lot lighting fixtures were changed on Oct. 29, for a 60 to 65 percent savings on energy costs.

The new lights in the pool are T5 high output/high efficiency fluorescent lighting instead of the metal halide fixtures that previously lit the aquatics area and were replaced by Marshall Electrical Contracting Inc.

The pool will now have 14 lights fixtures instead of 12.

Seibert said 127 light fixtures have been replaced on the grounds.

The renovations are funded by the Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credits.

Siebert said NAP will also fund the new lockers and flooring in the locker rooms, an additional dressing room in the women's locker room, a new climate control system for the pool, a computer system upgrade, a surveillance system, new weight room flooring, new flooring in the kids' gym, resurfacing the parking lot and to get rid of all carpet in the building.
