  • The Rolla City Council will consider expenditures for The Centre and the airport Monday night.
    Listed on the agenda for the Nov. 5 meeting are three possible actions, two of them related to The Centre:
    • Awarding a bid to replace condenser coils on two rooftop HVAC units at The Centre.
    • Selecting a contractor to design and construct upgrades to the natatorium mechanical system at The Centre. • Awarding a bid for pavement work at the Rolla National Airport.
    The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at Rolla City Hall, 901 N. Elm St. It is open to the public.
    There’s very little else on the agenda, but that could change.
    Also on the agenda is consideration of a resolution to authorize Mayor Bill Jenks to sign an agreement with Rolla Asphalt LLC for the fiscal 2013 asphalt overlay project.
    Councilman Steven Leonard will report on the annual conference of the Local Government Employees Retirement System.
    Maria Kardon, of the Meramec Regional Planning Commission, will make a Community Foundation of the Ozarks presentation about The Eck Animal Shelter Foundation.
    An executive committee to discuss real estate is scheduled.
    Several written reports will be received by the council, including the September 2012 financial analysis of The Centre.
    The council received the August analysis at the October meeting, and that report showed the recreation center had spent $315,973.69 more than it took in by Aug. 31. That’s a “recapture rate” of 75.64 percent. The Centre was expected to have lost only $211,007.55 by this time, a recapture rate of 84.23 percent.
    The total operating revenues for the year as of Aug. 31: $981,124.17.
    The total operating expenses for that same period: $1,297,097.86.
    Revenues for that time period are down from last year. At the end of August 2011, revenues added up to $1,035,217.37. Expenses were $1,355,130.35.
    The city’s fiscal year begins Oct. 1, so the September report will have the totals for the fiscal year.
