YMCA ruling
Placeholder Image
The latest chapter in the city of Camden’s now-defunct attempt to build a new YMCA facility was written last week when a circuit court judge ruled the city had been within its legal rights to attempt to use hospitality tax revenue to construct the facility. Ultimately, the city’s controversial plan for a Y was defeated in a November 2012 referendum, and the furor surrounding the matter played a major role in Mayor Jeffrey Graham’s defeat. So, Judge Alison Renee Lee’s ruling was something of a Pyrrhic victory for the city.
