The district will act as its own general contractor for the project. The board approved the cost of the buildout of Water Street Fitness, at 315 N. Water St., at $41,167.

A three-year, $121,000 lease agreement will equip the building.

Initially, the facility will be open and staffed Monday through Thursday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

The board approved grand opening monthly membership fees that will be available through March. Memberships start at $7.92 per month for in-district senior citizens and top out at the two-member family non-resident rate of $37.50. There is also an option for those who don't want to commit to an annual membership.
