The financial statements for the year ended 7 months ago have finally been issued, now we can find out what’s in them. In the previous year, the BCPA received only $1,450,000 in Home Rule Sales Tax, so they had a profit of $450,000 just from people shopping in Bloomington. Admission Fees were up by $91,895. Without the 1% Sales Tax, the BCPA would not survive. I do wonder how they came up with a nice round number like $1,900,000!
