MILWAUKEE (AP) - A federal bankruptcy judge has approved the sale of four suburban Milwaukee YMCA properties for $9 million.

The YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee filed for bankruptcy in June after its debt rose to $29 million. The sale will allow the Milwaukee Y to restructure into a more urban organization.

The YMCA of Central Waukesha County will buy the Y in Greenfield, another in Menomonee Falls and the West Suburban Y in Wauwatosa for $7 million.

The Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1vud8vr ) reports the Kettle Moraine YMCA will buy the Feith Family Ozaukee Y for $2 million.

Milwaukee Y president Julie Tolan says in the past two years competition from other health and fitness clubs has “escalated dramatically.”
