VenuWorks addressed its first year managing the downtown arena at last night's Bloomington city council meeting. Officials say there's still work that needs to be done, despite improvements made over its first year in management.
The company is reporting a loss of $674,000 at the newly named Grossinger Motors Arena, which is larger than expected.
The company did make some improvements to the arena, in areas like security and concession items. Officials say they want to improve the speed of service and its marketing over the next year.
The Bloomington City Council also approved an amendment Monday, to the city's master bike plan, adding a bike lane to Washington Street. Neighbors in the past have said they don't want the bike lane because they are concerned about safety.
