The Board of Directors of the Southern Prairie Y-M-C-A is still trying to sort out the books for their facilities in Creston and Greenfield. Executive director Dave Henle was fired a week ago after board members discovered financial problems. Board member Skip Kenyon says there were differences in the amounts the organization owed and what was reported by Henle.Kenyon says they don’t know the exact amount of debt they owe, but it’s well in excess of 100-thousand dollars. Kenyon says the financial trouble could force them to close both facilities.He says the goal is to try and avoid closing down, as they gotten recommendations from the national “Y” and others to try and keep things going. Kenyon says they’ve named a new executive director and are taking steps to lower costs.He says they’re basically starting from scratch with their operations, but he calls it an opportunity. The financial situation is being investigated by local police and other agencies, but no charges have been filed at this time.
