By “reinvested” I mean how much has the Parent Y spent on those items for which they are responsible under their lease over the past years and 9 months.
Section 3.2 of the original 1989 lease states “….. YMCA shall be furnish the necessary office equipment, nautilus equipment, free weights and sporting equipment, etc. All such equipment or additional facilities and material will be new and of modern design and safety features, and of first class material. YMCA agrees to maintain said equipment in a safe, sanitary and neat condition, and in accordance with applicable standards at all times.”
I am having great difficulty understanding why it is seemingly tolerable for pictures and stories of broken machines and inappropriately sized aquatic equipment, and explanations of newer machines with a smaller footprint equipment that if purchased would allow for a greater number of machines in a given space and thus cut down on waiting lines and times, to be freely making the rounds – WHEN SUCH EXPENDITURES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENT Y.
Surely it cannot be for lack of funds because over the past 3 years and 9 months the Port Orange y has contributed $ 1,318,390 to the Parent Y’s administration in Deland, AND it is perfectly logical to assume a reasonable portion of that amount would be expected to be “reinvested” in new equipment, etc in the Port Orange Y.
If you have not done the necessary research to advise Counsel regarding options to have a lower cost operator than the Volusia/Flagler YMCA run the Port Orange Y I would suggest you do so immediately. Paying anyone $1.3 million to operate the Port Orange Y for the past 3 years and 9 months is obscene considering the City paid Kemper Sports $ 325,000 over the same period to operate the Cypress Head Golf Club.
We are talking about a low hanging $1 million dollars over 3 years that could be invested in Port Orange instead of subsidizing a bloated Deland bureaucracy, for no good reason!!

Can you clarify what you mean by “reinvested”?
