RIVERSIDE - The local YMCA's bankruptcy has left courthouses in Riverside without daycare services, it was announced today.

"They told us last night they would not be able to provide services anymore," Riverside County Presiding Judge Mark Cope said. "It was short notice. Now we'll need to move as quickly as possible to find a replacement."

Members of the general public, including jurors, had the option of leaving their children at daycare facilities in the Riverside Hall of Justice, Family Law Courthouse and Riverside Juvenile Court.

Until a replacement vendor can be found, alternate arrangements will have to be made, according to Cope.

"With the budget issues we're facing, we're going to have to re-examine how much we can do and whether we can continue to do it," the judge said.

He noted that last week's proposed 2013-14 budget presented by Gov. Jerry Brown did not contain the major spending cuts state courts feared. However, past years' budget reductions have created a long-term "significant" deficit for the court system as a whole.

He said the Riverside County Superior Court will be weighing various options to address the funding gap.

The Riverside YMCA closed its doors on Friday after filing for bankruptcy. The Hemet YMCA did the same thing Monday. Details were not immediately available.
