Your weekly report from the City Manager includes an economic impact estimate for the Coliseum Complex (including the swimming hole) that puts a multiplier on 68K hotel room-nights said to be filled by Coliseum events thus far in the fiscal year and comes out to $116 million.
How much of that flows straight to the City in taxes? Even if you discount the multiplier and the room rates, is it enough to offset the annual operating deficit? In any case, I'm sure it's terrible news for Greensboro.
And the interim attorney says one way to get around an Amendment One ban on partner benefits for The Gays could be to extend partner benefits to all unmarried couples. Sounds expensive!
