Spectra Venue Management says it has saved Sioux City, Iowa nearly $70,000 in the subsidy it pays for the Tyson Events Center. Building GM Erika Newton recently told the Sioux City Council the building was making progress towards its goal of reducing the city’s subsidy of the building by $270,000 in its first year through increased events and sponsorship revenue. “That’s where we’ll be in our first six months: about $70,000 better than what this past year’s budget was,” said Tom McDonnell, Spectra’s director of business development, according to the SCJ. “And then we’ll see how that goes into fiscal year 2019 and how that budget plays out and where our improvements are in that.”
