The past two weeks I have been trying to put together a column on Union Station. Think it should be ready for next Sunday. On Friday January 13th, the numbers for last fiscal year were presented during the WRA board meeting.
|Annual Deficit||Net Cash Position|
|June 30, 2016||$1,905,735||$15,315,470|
|June 30, 2015||$1,691,338||$17,189,526|
|June 30, 2014||$1,919,429||$18,880,731|
|June 30, 2013||$1,687,769||$20,779,921|
Last fiscal year Union Station is losing the taxpayers of Worcester almost $160,000 per month!! The City Council needs to really decide if we can keep subsidizing non-essential businesses like:
- Train Station
- Convention Center
- Parking Garages
- Golf Courses
Evidently I am not alone check out the WRA meeting at 5 minutes for 5 minutes !!! Then you need to watch at 14 minutes for 5 more minutes… These are the exact types of questions the City Council needs to discuss not voting on a petition to put an item on the Historical Commission agenda, that is already on the Historical Commission agenda.
