Costly Rec Centers

Rec centers can be popular, but financially demanding

City recreation centers in Ohio can be favorites with hometown residents, but also can be taxing when the bill comes. In northeast Ohio, the Solon recreation center is a rarity - it expects to turn a profit. It's on target to generate a 100-thousand dollar profit on a budget of one-point-three (m) million dollars. The Ohio Parks and Recreation Association says a rec center is doing excellent if it raises even half its expenses.
