The Cuyahoga Falls Parks and Recreation Board will finally decide on the future of the Natatorium's rate structure Thursday evening.
Board Chairman Tim Gorbach says the group's decision to change the language of the fitness facility's married discount rate could go either way.
"That resolution could be to keep the rate structure the same, or it could be to make it the same, " Gorbach said.
"At this time I don't know what the will of the Board is."
The ongoing issue stems from Shane and Coty May, a same-sex married couple who were denied a family rate at the gym in January.The couple were married in Washington D.C. on October 28 of last year.
In the April meeting ,Gorbach asked the Board to take time to review the Nat's current rate policies before voting in May.
"I wanted to make sure that everyone knew all the definitions therein with how we currently charge our members."
Gorbach says he doesn't want the Natatorium and the city of Cuyahoga Falls to be classified as discriminatory regardless of the Board's ruling.
"If we can move more away from any discriminatory items in our rate structure I certainly think that's the way to go," he explained.
The Parks and Rec Board will be meeting at 5:30pm Thursday at the Natatorium to vote on the rate structure.
