Polk County Board of Supervisors
The Polk County Board of Supervisors recently
approved the Iowa Events Center budget for fiscal
year 12/13 and received news from Global Spectrum,
the company hired to manage the Iowa Events
Center (IEC), that due to the successful and
profitable year, Polk County will receive $224,812
overall in profits for FY 11/12. This past fiscal
year, the Iowa Events Center hosted 431 events,
and, with the proposed budget for FY 12/13,
it can look forward to more events to come.
Global Spectrum anticipates continued profits
for the FY 12/13 budget year.
Prior to the construction of Wells Fargo Arena
and Hy-Vee Hall, Polk County subsidized the
operations of Veterans Memorial Auditorium and
the Convention Complex at more than $800,000
annually. Since engaging Global Spectrum to
manage/operate the IEC facilities, the County
has provided minimal subsidy for the entire
complex, according to reports. CV
