The estimated cost to operate an outdoor aquatic facility is approximately $428,000 per year. Of this, approximately $378,000 in revenues would be generated from admissions, instruction, rental and concessions. This leaves approximately $50,000 per year to be covered by tax dollars.
"Operating costs" includes labor, utilities, programming, and other direct expenses such as supplies and maintenance. Principal and interest costs are not considered "operating costs," but are factored in as a part of the total estimated financial impact.
