Recreation renovating fitness center through summer

Petersburg fitness buffs may be in for a tough time over the next few months. Due to renovations, the borough’s fitness center closed one of its weight rooms from this week through mid-August, and the community gym will also close down for a week next month for floor refinishing. Robbie Feinberg stopped by the center last week and spoke to Parks and Recreation director Donnie Hayes to see what that those changes mean for residents.
