Letter: Revenue figures

May 21, 2013


To the editor:

There has been a lot of coverage in the last few days regarding the lower-than-expected bids to complete the Rock Chalk Park recreation center. Many on the City Commission seem to be ecstatic but not sure why the original estimates were so far off.

Since estimating the cost to build the project doesn’t seem to be an exact science I can’t help but wonder how accurate the information is the commission evaluated regarding the revenue projections, operating and maintenance costs.
