Gaylord Aquatic Center Has Good First Year 11 Nov 11

The final calculations have been added up, and the first year of operation for the Gaylord Aquatic Center was “better than expected.” The new Aquatic Center lost nearly $11,000 during it’s first summer, but Gaylord city officials had been told by the designers of the water park that such facilities typically lose $30,000 their first year, and the city had budgeted for a loss of more than $66,000. A total of 31,786 admissions were sold throughout the Gaylord Aquatic Center’s 90-day summer season, and revenues totaled more than $160,000, or nearly $69,000 more than expected.
