Knox Clerk-Treasurer Jeff Houston gave the city council an update on the income and expenses at the girl scout cabin, the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center and the Gateway property.
The Gateway gathers income from the Starke County Chamber of Commerce, Starke County Tourism Commission, Starke County Economic Development Foundation, and the city. The fund stayed in the black in 2014. The girl scout cabin revenue was less than $100 short of the fund balance.
Houston said there were some big hits in revenue from the community center. Two transfers of $23,000 and $20,000 were made as there were some maintenance issues last year. The heating and cooling system had a leak and electrical issues plagued any revenues for the community center. The city has not realized a surplus of funds from receipts at the community center.
