Ada County to keep West YMCA 100 percent tax-exempt status

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- Ada County commissioners voted Thursday to maintain the West Family YMCA's 100 percent tax-exempt status in front of a standing room only crowd of supporters.

Earlier this year, the West Family YMCA moved its childcare to a nearby building and added more crossfit equipment and programs such as yoga.

Two commercial health clubs in Boise, Idaho Athletic Club and Axiom, asked county commissioners if that specific YMCA facility should then be allowed to keep its full property tax exemption.

Numerous supporters were on hand Thursday to support the YMCA.
