The Washington Y is getting ready to install new floors this weekend. Shalon Hoyle, Childcare Director at the Washington Y says the Y has received a $21,480 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation as well matching funds from Y’s Men’s Club and Iowa Brenton Trust to install new flooring.
She says the Y will close at 6:00 Friday evening to work on removing everything from the first floor and that will last through the weekend. Hoyle notes the Y will reopen with their normal hours Monday morning. She says after an abatement over the weekend, Marshall’s Flooring will install the new flooring.
Hoyle adds the city has donated space at the old library for the daycare to use while the flooring is being installed. She says everything will be moved back in a week later on to the new flooring which will be much easier to maintain.
