Conference centre hits budget target

Despite some tough questions from council, the Parksville Community and Conference Centre budget is on track

Despite some tough questions from council, the Parksville Community and Conference Centre budget is on track and still good value, according to a presentation from executive director Margaret Spruit and board president Bill McKinney.

They presented the 2013 budget and updated five-year plan at council’s Oct. 1 regular meeting for the city owned facility which is operated by an independent society.

The overall budget for 2013 is $407,432, including a $228,856 subsidy from the city, which is up 2.2 per cent over this year. The rest of the budget comes from revenue from room and equipment rentals.

 

Spruit said they met their goal, keeping the increase under three per cent but it did go up due to union contract increases and the hiring of an additional staff member.
