The closest I came to an actual number was this:
And I quote:
"The Convention Center Operations Fund budget for FY 2011-12 includes operating and debt service costs associated with the convention center and parking facility. This budget also funds personnel expenditures for food and beverage operations, general administrative costs,
parking facility expenditures, and utilities. Funding for the continued management by SMG, marketing by the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), and the ongoing coordination and management involved by City staff is also included."
They have purposely obfuscated the numbers by including all these things together. I suspect somebody from budget knows the breakdown.
But they're not telling us - that's for sure.
I had forgotten about SMG - thanks for reminding me of their involvement. Looking at the budget its impossible to tell how much is being charged.
