YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - The Yakima City Council is expected to hear about a potential deal for a $9 million aquatics center at Chesterley Park at its upcoming study session.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports (https://bit.ly/1GbsidS ) that the potential deal between Yakima and the Yakima Family YMCA will be heard Tuesday. Under the proposal, the city would raise $4.5 million from a bond sale. The TMCA would provide the rest of the construction funding and cover any cost overruns.

City Manager Tony O’Rourke says the council is expected to be asked to approve a final version of the proposal Oct. 20.

The center would house a lap pool, a recreation pool and a warm water therapy pool. It would be connected to a $9 million fitness center. The YMCA would finance the separate center independently.
