Park Board Candidates Comment on Property Tax Subsidies of Regional Attractions

From our reading of the 2018 Park District budget, Roosevelt Park Zoo is expected to operate at an ~$1,000,000 deficit. Operation of MAYSA is expected to cost ~$700k above forecast revenue. Does your reading of the budget affirm those numbers? If not, please explain. If yes, is it appropriate that citizens of Minot bear the entire cost of subsidizing these regional attractions through the Minot Park District property tax levy and how would you propose reconciling the situation?
