The Spartanburg City Council decided Monday night that the city's swim center will close in the fall of 2013.
Members of the Spartanburg Swim Center will get some help when the center closes when the City Council offered them a membership to the Spartanburg YMCA. The council is offering to help those needing financial assistance to access another facility for a year. The council said they will consider helping out financially in future budgets as well.
The swim center's status has been up in the air since the council voted to close the T.K. Gregg Center in April. Costs to repair both centers were too high, city officials said. They have said there are plans to build a new center in the future.
To be eligible for financial assistance to another facility, swim members must be a city resident, an active swim center user and must provide documentation of their household income.
