Vandalia changes open gym policy at rec center

VANDALIA – The City of Vandalia approved a resolution to change the open gym schedule at the Vandalia Recreation Center, 1111 Stonequarry Rd., at their latest city council meaning.

The gymnasium has become a popular attraction to all who visit the rec center. Lately, non-members have been using the facility on a daily paid admission basis.

The facility, during peak hours, can be so full that members have issues accessing the gym. After a number of requests to free up the gym to members, the Vandalia Recreation Center will be implementing a new policy, beginning Monday, Nov. 7.
