SO OUR TEAMS, AND OUR VENUES PLAY AN IT IS NOT JUST SPORTS, OUR FACILITIES ARE CRITICAL TO NASHVILLE APPLAUSE I CAN INDUSTRIES AND TO THE TOURISM INDUSTRY. SO AS A RESULT THE CARE AND THE MAINTENANCE OF THE FACILITIES IS A CHARGE THAT WE TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY.

AND WOULD HE PEDRO PAIRS TO THE EXPANSION JOINTS THAT HAD RESULTED IN WATER LEAKS, AND SUITES HAVE BEEN RENOVATED OR ARE IN PROCESS AND IN THE QUEUE. AND WE ARE ALSO USING THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE FACILITY ASSESSMENTS STUDIES THAT YOU PROBABLY MENTIONED THAT WE MENTIONED LAST YEAR, AND WE COMMISSIONED IT IN 2016 AND WE’RE USING THE RESULTS OF THAT STORY TO MANUFACTURE FUTURE SPENDING BOTH IN THE STADIUM AND THE ARENA.>>I THINK THAT IT’S ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT BOTH OF THESE PROJECTS, THE SEAT REPLACEMENT PROJECT, AND THE FACILITY ASSESSMENT STUDY, WERE FUNDED WITH CMA, CONCESSIONS REVENUE, AND SO THAT SIMPLY MEANS HAT FANS THAT WHO CAME TO THE FACILITIES AND WHO SAT IN THE SEATS ARE THE ONES WHO IS PAID FOR IT. IT ISES IMPORTANT TO MENTION THAT OUR TEAMS AND FACILITY MANAGERS HAVE MADE SIZEABLE PRIVATE INVESTMENTS INTO THE VERY MUCH USE, FROM REST ROOMS, HVAC, REFURBERMENTS, AND BUILDOUTS, AND METAL DETECTORS, EACH OF OUR TEAMS HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THE FACILITIES WE ALL OUR HOME. THE SOUNDS CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPAND FIRST TENNESSEE PARK. THEY HOSTED THEIR FIRST CONCERT. THEY ARE CURRENTLY HOSTING NASHVILLE’S INAUGURAL SEASON.

THANK YOU, AND THANK YOU DIRECTOR FOR BEING HERE. A COUPLE OF QUICK WEST.>>/KWES /KWES /KWES /KWES /KWES /KWES /KWES /KWES QUE QUESTIONS. IT IS COMPLEX, AND IT COMES BACK IN THE FINANCE PAGES. UNDER THE SPORTS AUTHORITY WOULD BE A LOT OF THESE ITEMS, I KNOW IT’S A SUBSIDY FOR SOUND BALLPARK IS DOWN TO 600 TO YOU THIS YEAR, FROM 1000000.4 LAST YEAR, IS THAT FROM THE OUTSIDE REVENUE BEING GENERATE BECAUSE THE TIF, PROJECT HAS NOT STARTED YET, THE REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT. IT HASN’T, AND THE CHECKS IN THAT AREA HAVE INCREASED AND THAT DROVE THE SUBSIDY AMOUNT DOWN. AND THAT’S FROM TAX COLLECTION INNINGS THE NEIGHBORHOOD?>>YES, SO THAT’S SUSTAINABLE.>>YES. THAT IS GREAT, MARVELOUS. BRIDGE STONE SUBSIDY OF 3.351 MILLION, OBVIOUSLY BRIDGE STONE IS INCREDIBLY SUCCESSFUL. GENERALLY, IF YOU WOULD BACK OVER FOR THE PUBLIC, CONSIDER WHY WE STILL PAYING A $3.3 MILLION LINE FOR BRIMS BRIDGESTONE FOR THE CURRENT BUDGET. WHEN THAT WAS AAMENDED THERE WAS NO CAP ON SUBSIDY EVERY YEAR WE WERE WAITING TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. AND THEN WITH THE AMENDED LEASE, THERE WAS A MAXIMUM LOSS CAP, AND THAT CAP IS AROUND 5.2, 5.4 MILLION RIGHT NOW, SO IT GREATLY INVENT ADVISES THE TEAM BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT ANYTHING IN EXCESS OF THE CAP, OVER THE CAP, THEY WILL BE ON THE HOOK TO PAY FOR. IF THEY COME UNDER THAT, THEY GET TO KEEP IT.>>KEEP THE DIFFERENCE.>>YES, AND THE EXPECTATION OF THIS YEAR, AND GOING FORWARD IS IS I WILL GOING TO BE MORE THAN 3.351 MILLION. I’M SORRY. THE EXPECTATION IS FOR NEXT YEAR TOO, THAT YOU WILL KEEP IT AT THE SAME LEVEL, IS THIS SOMETHING THAT COULD GO DOWN?>>IT’S TOO EARLY. SO THE GSD, STADIUM DEBT TRANSFER OF 3.2 MILLION EVEN OVER THE YEARS, THAT’S AN AMORT AMORTIZATION, DEBT SERVICE, AND AMORTIZATION PAYMENT. WHEN WILL THAT BE PAID OFF?>>[ INAUDIBLE ].>>THAT DEBT PAYMENT, IS THAT MATCHED WITH THE LEASE OF THE STADIUM OR?>>[ INAUDIBLE ].>>AND BOUTIQUESUALLY THAT PAYMENT YOU WOULD EXPECT TO HAVE THAT FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL YEARS?>>[ INAUDIBLE ]. THE FORD ICE CENTER, HOW MUCH DOES REVENUE DOES THAT GENERATE FOR THE CITY ANDS TO IT PAY FOR ITS OPERATIONS. THE FORD ICE CENTER THEY BASICALLY DO BREAK EVEN. THIS HE DO PAY RENT TO TUNE OF ABOUT $350,000 RIGHT NOW. I THINK THAT’S GOING TO INCREASE IN THE NEXT 1 TO 2 YEARS, 375. AND THAT’S PAYING IT TO THE GENERAL FUND, THE $350,000 IN RENT?>>I BELIEVE THAT IT GOES INTO THE ARENA REVENUE FUND. I CAN CHECK ON THAT ONE.>>THE ARENA REVENUE FUND, CAN YOU DEFINE FOR US, HOW MANY DOES THAT ARENA FUND FOR?>>THAT IS THE BRIDGE STONE ARENA FUND, ANDMSTONE ARENA FUND, ANDDGESTONE ARENA FUND, AND IT IS AFTER THE PREDATORS PAY RENT, AND THERE IS RENT FROM THE OTHER TENNANTS IN THE FACILITIES, THE TENNESSEE HALL OF FAME, THE REGISTER OF DEEDS THAT ALL GOES INTO THE REVENUE FUNDS AND THEN WHEN WE NEED TO PAY THE MANAGEMENT FEE AND SOME OF THE OTHER OBLIGATIONS THAT THE CITY HAS, THEN IT COMES OUT OF THE ARENA FUND.>>BUT THE PAYMENT OF 3.3 MILLION TO BRIDGESTONE IS SEPARATE FROM THE GENERAL FUND, SO IT’S NOT THAT THE ARENA REVENUE FUND IS COVERING ALL OF THOSE EXPENSES, WE ARE STILL OUT OF POCKET THESE OTHER AMOUNTS THAT WE’RE DISCUSSING?>>I DON’T THINK THAT I FOLLOWED THAT, I’M SORRY.>>YOU WERE DESCRIBING WHERE THE ARENA FUND HAD ASSETS THAT WERE PRODUCING INCOME.>>YES, AND THE INCOME WAS COMING IN AND PAYING EXPENSES >>UM-HMM.>>HOWEVER, WE STILL HAVE EXPENSES BEYOND THOSE EXPENSS AS EVIDENCED BY THE BRIDGESTONE SUBSIDY.>>YES, YES, THE MANAGEMENT FEE, IF THERE’S A PERFORMANCE BONUS, OR INCENTIVEPONE US, THAT COMES FROM THE ARENA REVENUE FUND. SO REALLY THE BRIDGESTONE SUBSIDY IS FROM THE MANAGEMENT FEE, THE SUCCESS FEE OF THE MANAGEMENT FEE, 3.351 MILLION IS SEPARATE. SEE SOME OF THIS IS PAID FOR BY THE GENERAL TAXPAYER, SOME OF THIS IS PAID FOR BY THE ARENA REVENUE FUND. JUST GOING BACK TO — HOW MUCH MONEY IS IN THE ARENA REVENUE FUND? IS THERE A POSITIVE BALANCE?>>YES.>>HOW BIG IS THAT BALANCE?>>COUNCILMAN, I DON’T HAVE THAT INFORMATION WITH ME. BUT IT IS READILY AVAILABLE, WE CAN GET IT TO YOU FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. SO IT’S JUST A QUESTION OF WHEN IS THIS SORT OF BREAK EVEN TO THE GENERAL TAXPAYER AS SEPARATE FROM FEES, AND RENTS AND COLLECTIONS THAT YOU ALL ARE QUITE WONDERFULLY COLLECTING AND ONE FINAL QUESTION, VERY GRACIOUS OF YOUR TIME. THE PAYMENT OF THE ARCHITECTURAL PLANS FOR THE STADIUM, THE FAMOUS $135,000 THAT WERE PAID BY THE SPORTS AUTHORITY FOR THE STADIUM PLANS AT THE FAIRGROUNDS, THAT CAME FROM A SEAT TAX FUND, WE WERE TOLD AT THE TIME. AND THE SEAT TAX FUND IS SEPARATE FROM THE ARENA REVENUE FUND?>>IT CAME FROM THE ARENA REVENUE FUND, BUT AS SEAT USE FUNDS ARE COLLECTED THEN THEY ARE DEPOSITED INTO THIS ARENA FUND >>AND YOU ARE THE ARBITER OF THE ARENA FUND, AND YOU ARE THE WATCH TO GO, OF ALL OF THESE DIFFERENT SOURCES OF MONEY GOING INTO THE ARENA FUND, THE PUBLIC IS RIGHT IN VIEWING YOU AS –>>THE METRO FINANCES IS OUR FISCAL AGENT SO THEY ARE THE ONES WHO WANT — WE WATCH OVER IT, BUT IN TERMS OF THE SPECIFIC ALTO KILLINGSES THAT ARE MADE, AND SEEING WHAT IS PAID AND INITIATING SOME OF THOSE PAYMENTS THAT IS DONE BY METROLOCATIONS THAT ARE MADE, AND EING WHAT IS PAID AND INITIATING SOME OF THOSE PAYMENTS THAT IS DONE BY METRO FINANCE, THE OPERATING MONEY THAT IS COMING FROM THE OTHER PROGRAM REVENUE, AND DEBT COLLECTIONS, THAT MONEY IS COMING ALSO FROM THE ARENA REVENUE FUND, FROM A SEAT TAX?>>NO FROM OUR BUDGET, THAT COMES FROM THE GENERAL FUND APPROPRIATION.>>OF 859,000 WHICH IS EXACTLY HALF, AND THEN THE OTHER HALF COMES FROM?>>THE OTHER HALF IS REALLY JUST THE TRANSFER BETWEEN THE FUNDS BECAUSE WE WILL TAKE THAT $850,000 APPROPRIATION FUND, TRANSFER INTO HER PERSONAL FUND, FOR THE DAY-TO-DAY OPERATIONS SO YOU’LL SEE A TRANSFER FOR THAT AMOUNT.>>SO ALL OF THAT COMES FROM THE TAXPAYER, JUST SOURCED 9TRACKING THROUGH TWO DIFFERENT FUND. IT IS A DUPLICATE OF THE NUMBER. I WOULD JUST CHARACTERIZE THAT AS THE $807,000. IF YOU JUMP OVER TO COUNCILMAN. IT SAYS OTHER GOVERNMENT REVENUE. SO YOU WILL SEE ON THE PAGE BEFORE, WHERE YOU HAVE GSD, FUNDS, THE 859, YOU WILL SEE THAT’S COMING IN AS AN OPERATING — DO YOU SEE THE 832, THAT’S WHERE HER EXPENSES ARE, AND IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT PAGE, WHICH IS THE SPECIAL PURPOSE FUND YOU’LL SEE A SIMILAR TRANSFER COMING INTO THAT SPECIAL PURPOSE FUND.>>THE EFFECT ON THE TAXPAYER, IT WOULD NOT BE CORRECT TO SAY 859, 3.3 MILLION FROM BRIDGESTONE, THE MILLION DOLLARS FOR STADIUM MAINTENANCE WHICH I KNOW THAT YOU ALL ARE BEEN CAREFUL. EVERYBODY WANTS IT TO BE A HIGHER NUMBER, BUT AND THEN $600,000 FOR THE BALLPARK. THOSE ARE THE SOURCES OF GENERAL TAXPAYER MONEY IN THIS SPACE, PURPOSE TO THAT UP. VERY GRATEFUL THANK YOU AS ALWAYS.>>THANK YOU, SO MUCH, COUNCILMAN COOPER. COUNCILMAN GLOVER. THANK YOU, CHAIR.>>I WANT TO GO BEING TO THE 135,000, HAS THE COMMISSION, BOARD OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, HAVE YOU PUT ONLY SAVE GUARD FEGUARD INTO PLACE .>>WE HAVE HAD ADDED THEM AS APPROVER TO THIS PARTICULAR WORKLOAD. WE BELIEVE THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF IT, BECAUSE NOW I WILL SEE ALL OF THE INVOICES AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPROVE THOSE, AND THIS IS FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT SERVICES. THE 1.4 MILLION PEOPLE AT NISSAN, HOW DOES THAT COMPARE TO THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, YOU SAID THAT’S TENDANCE WAS. 1.4 IN 2017 IS IS THE NUMBER THAT I RECEIVED. AND WE HAVE SEEN JUST THIS UPWARD TICK IN THE NUMBER OF EVENTS AND SUBSEQUENTLY THE NUMBER OF GUESTS THAT HAVE COME YOU THERE THE STADIUM, SO THEY HAVE ADDED SOCCER GAMES, MONSTER JAM, CONCERTS SO WE’RE JUST SEEING AN INCREASE OF EVENTS OVER THERE THAT WE ARE REALLY APPRECIATIVE OF THE WORK THERE.>>. THE REASON I ASK THE QUESTION IS BECAUSE I DON’T REMEMBER WHAT YEAR WAS WE ALLOTTED 25 MILLION OR SO FOR SOME IMPROVEMENTS, AND THE QUESTION WAS ASKED, WELL, BECAUSE I THINK THAT AT THE SAME TIME WE UPPED THE SEAT CHARGE FROM TWO TOLLS TO $3; IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY. SO WE’RE COLLECTING ABOUT $4.2 MILLION THAT THE DEBT SERVICE TO PAY OFF THE BOND THAT WE TOOK OUT. I’M JUST WONDERING WHAT IT’S LOOKED LIKE AS FAR AS USAGE OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS OR SO IF YOU DON’T HAVE IT HERE, THAT’S NOON. WE HAVAL OF THE TICKET TAX INFORMATION. AND SINCE INCEPTION WE KNOW THAT THE TICKET TAX HAS $20 MILLION I THINK IS TABOUT THE REVENUE, THAT’S BROUGHT IN SINCE INCEPTION, SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE NUMBERS, YEAR TO YEAR NUMBERS, WE CAN DEFINITELY DO THAT. BUT, IT’S DOING WHAT WE HOPED IT WOULD DO, AND WE’RE VERY PLEASED. WE’RE VERY PLEASED OVER THERE.>>WHAT I’M REALLY JUST LOOKING FOR. FIRST OF ALL, I’M GLAD THAT THERE’S MORE EVENTS. AGAIN, WHEN WE ISSUED THE BOND ON THE STADIUM, THERE WAS SOME CONCERN OF WILL WE ACTUALLY COLLECT ENOUGH REVENUES OUT OF IT, IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PAYMENTS. IT SOUNDS LIKE WE’RE DOING THAT. AND SO TALIA, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN GIVE ME THE NUMBER, BUT WHERE ARE WE ON OUR RESERVE FUND ON OUR DEBT RESERVE FUND FOR TH STADIUM? HAS IT DONE WHAT WE ANTICIPATED IT DOING? THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL. WE’LL LOOK THAT UP. THANK YOU, CHAIR. THANK YOU, COUNCILMAN, REMEMBER TO PUT THAT IN A QUESTION. COUNCIL LADY HENDERSON. THANK YOU CHAIR VERCHER COUNCILMAN COOPER ASKED ALL OF MY QUESTIONS EXCEPT ONE. AND SO AS WE’RE LOOKING AT THIS 859 K, THAT GETS TRANSFERRED IN FROM THE GSD, AND THEN OTHERWISE WHEN I’M LOOKING AT YOUR OPERATING EXPENSE, PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THEM ARE IN THE VERY HELPFUL CATEGORY OF OTHER, SO I GUESS WHAT I’M WONDERING IS FOR YOUR 495,000 THERE THAT YOU HAVE IN” OTHER”, CAN YOU SPEAK TO YOUR MAJOR EXPENSES IN THAT REGARD, FOR INSTANCE, YOUR SALARY, AND YOUR STAFF SALARY.>>OUR SALARY WOULD BE IN PERSONAL SERVICES, BUT THE MAIN COMPONENT OF THAT ALL OTHER EXPENSES GOES TOWARDS BUILDING INSURES,ANCES WE PAY 440,000 IN BIDDING INSURANCE.>>SO 440 K IN BUILDING INSURANCE, BE THEN I GUESS I WILL JUST ASK FINANCE, SO AS WE LOOK AT ALL OF THESE BUDGET, AND WE HAVE LISTED HERE THE VARIOUS FTE’S, AND WE CONSIDER THAT PER DEPARTMENT, STATUS QUO, OR UP OR DOWN A STAFF POSITION, REMEMBER ARE WE FINDING THOSE SALARIES IN OUR BINDER PLEASE MANUFACTURE. IN TERMS OF THE SALARY LINE ITEMS FOR THE BUDGETS, IT WILL BE LISTED UNDER PERSONAL SERVICES BUCKET AT THE TOP, AND THAT NUMBER WOULD INCLUDE SALARIES, PLUS FRINGE BENEFITS. HOW DOES THAT BREAK OUT. 2954 FOR YOURSELF AND TWO OTHER STAFF. SO MY SALARY IS ABOUT 110. AND I HAVE TWO STAFF, WHO ARE AT AROUND 40 EACH.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>DID YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS, COUNCIL LADY?>>NO, I THOUGHT IT WAS CLEAR THAT I WAS –.>>COUNCIL LADY VANREESE.>>I WAS JUST — COULD YOU REMIND ME HOW MUCH PEOPLE WENT TO A SOCCER GAME AT NISSAN STADIUM.>>THIS LAST YEAR?>>YES, THE LAST YEAR. BETWEEN THE GOLD CUP AND THE ICC, WE HAD CLOSE TO 100,000.>>SO 100,000 AT THAT 1.4 IS SOCCER FANS?>>I’M SORRY, 100,000 OF THE 1.4 MILLION ATTENDANCE WAS SOCCER FANS. YES, AND PROBABLY MORE THAN THAT, AND WE JUST MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET TO THEM. THANK YOU.>>YING NO OTHER COUNCIL MEMBERS SEEKING RECOGNITION, THANK YOU SO MUCH TO THE SPORTS AUTHORITY, AND ALL THAT YOU DO TO SERVE THE CITY. NOW WE WILL HAVE THE CONVENTION CENTER COME
