Urban Politics #141: Changing The Arts Commission

November 1st, 2002

In response to the City’s anticipated $60 million deficit next year, the Mayor has proposed drastic cuts in every City department budget, including the Arts Commission’s. The Council is presently considering the Executive’s idea to temporarily suspend one of the Commission’s annual revenue sources, 20% of the City’s admissions tax receipts other than those generated by men’s professional sports. Half of that revenue stream will be made up from the General Fund. The Admissions tax would automatically kick in again in 2005.
