Intrust Bank Arena took a loss of about $60,000 in July, which county officials had anticipated with the slow-down of performances in the summer.
Assistant county manager Ron Holt told commissioners the loss was not a surprise as many tour groups take the summer off. And he stressed that the loss was less than expected.
“One month does not tell the story,” Holt said, adding that arena management expects the year to end well.
The arena has brought in about $4.9 million in gross income since its opening in January through July.
After operating expenses of nearly $2.9 million for that time period, net income for the downtown venue is just more than $2 million through July.
Activities have slowed down for the arena with two events in July.
