Ecpac Under CCT

Our study of how well the theater is performing under CCT:

The following study was performed for the 2006 period.

City provided the information for the operation of the ECPAC theater for 2006. This info was combined with the info on the ECPACLive.com website. No performances shown for Jan, 2006. There were approximately 35 entities with which contracts would have been executed.

Nominal rate for one-day rental: $2500. Cost to run: approximately 4 person-days. Guess $20 per hour. 20*4*8 = $640. Call it $1250, or half of the fee for the room. That would net 50% of the rental fee for the city to account for running the building. Net result is about $150,000 in revenue.

Subsidy paid by City:

Total Loss:

Total Loss per attendee:
$21.71

The above figures assume that the same events would occur but management would be handled by the Recreation Department, which is already skilled at handling facility rental agreements. Utilities are already paid separately, and are not included here.

If boosting the economy downtown is the goal, it would probably be more effective to give 35,000 coupons for $20 each to downtown restaurants and businesses.

Notes:


A request for documents was submitted and we got the response of: "Document Withheld as a Confidential Communication Pursuant to Evidence Code Sections 950-962, Lawyer-Client Privilege."

According to the CPRA:

Pending Litigation Documents
(b) Records pertaining to pending litigation to which the public agency is a party, or to claims made pursuant to Division 3.6 (commencing with Section 810), until the pending litigation or claim has been finally adjudicated or otherwise settled.
