Contracted operating expenditures from Troon totaled $4.9 million, which is approximately $153,000 or 3.1% under the budget amount of $5.0 million, which was mainly due to savings in personnel costs. The overall contracted operating expenditures exceeded overall contracted operating revenues by approximately $1.6 million.

Town operating revenues totaled $674,511, about $371,000 or 35.5% under the budget amount of $1,046,280. This drop in revenue was due to facility closures and limited capacity due to COVID-19.

Capital outlay expenditures totaled $123,002, compared to the budget amount of $106,500, which was anticipated due to costs related to fencing for the pickleball courts.
The overall ending fund balance in the Community Center Fund is estimated at $904,370, which includes accounting for the annual loan repayment amounts of $120,000 back to the General Fund to repay that fund for the $1.2 million transferred to the Community Center Fund for start-up operational and capital costs when the facility was initially acquired in 2015.
