Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the 2021 contract between the City of Madison and the Overture Center. The 2021 budget adopted by the Common Council in November 2020, includes $1,500,000 as the City’s subsidy to support Overture operations, a $300,000 increase from the $1.2 million subsidy provided in 2020. The original 2020 subsidy amount of $2,095,000, approved in November 2019 was reduced to $1.2 million in July 2020, due to the impact of the economic effects of the global pandemic on room tax collections in 2020. The City’s contribution is authorized by the Room Tax Commission and fully funded through the Room Tax Fund.
