The village recreation center is relocating to the former Perry Day Care Center space at Clinton Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church.

Mayor George Hubbard said Eastern Long Island Hospital notified the village in November that it would not renew its lease for the current rec center space. The lease expires at the end of May, Mr. Hubbard said.

The village currently pays $1,000 per month in rent plus utilities; the mayor said the arrangement at the church will be the same.

Perry Day Care Center closed in August 2013 due to financial hardships.

Last Thursday, the Village Board approved a resolution to hire Margaret DeVito as the new recreation program director. She’s replacing Catherine Matthews, who has held the position since 2012.
