If the G.C.A.C. and City Council approves the equipment purchase there will be $48,036 spent for the equipment for the next three budgets. With this additional $90,036 spent annually and a 2% budget increase over these years(3) our total expenditures will approximately be $1,472,864 income will approximately be $1,452,180. This equals a loss of approximately $20,684 for a three year period. After those three years the budget will not have the expenditure of $48,036 for equipment. Therefore we can predict a net profit over the following 8 years. Assuming nothing catastrophic happens. . C 6 i5 fv /-6zp k(d
