Please read “The Stratton Township Park” (ATTACHED). Complete questions 1-5 listed below. Compile your answers in a Word document.


Question 1: Prepare an annual program budget for the Stratton Township Park including golf operations; the pool; concerts; other park activities including tours, nature visitors, and general concessions; and administrative costs. Show the line-item details for each function by natural account and summarize the budget for the park as a whole. 

Because of the current fiscal situation, the Stratton Township needs to reduce its operating costs. As usual, the park is on the list of targeted operations. As the finance director for the township, you have been asked to work with the park’s manager to explore possible options. 

Question 2: Based on the information in the budget, find the break-even green fees for the golf course and the break-even admissions charges for the pool. You may assume that the volume of users will not change with increases in pricing. You may also assume that the course will operate for a full 130 days. 

a. Do both break even analyses based on the cost of delivering services with and without the allocated management salaries. 

b. Do you think the park can realistically charge these fees to park users? What might the consequences of raising fees be economically, politically, and in a public relations sense? 

Question 3: The park manager wants to know whether it makes sense to shut down one or more of the operations at the Stratton Township Park. Determine the impact of shutting down the golf course, the pool, the concert series, and the tours, and show the overall marginal impact of making each of these changes. Be sure to include all marginal revenues and all marginal expenses in your calculations. 

Question 4: After completing these analyses, the manager has decided to recommend three changes to the Park’s budget. 

First, he plans to increase green fees for golf to $5 above the break-even price excluding allocated management costs and rounded to the next highest multiple of $.50. Since competitive private clubs in the region cost $100 or more for a round of golf, he does not believe that an increase in price will result in a decline in the number of golfers using the course. 

Second, he wants to raise pool admission charges to $4.50. Given the demographics of those who use the pool, he believes that raising prices by $1.00 will result in a 5% drop in attendance. 

Third, he wants to eliminate three of the concerts the township had planned for the next year. 

Prepare a revised budget for the Stratton Township Park reflecting these changes. Will these budget modifications meet the township’s goal of reducing the subsidy it would have given to the park in the next fiscal year by 20%? 

Question 5: After receiving your analysis of the impact of eliminating the concerts and raising green fees and pool admission charges, the park manager has asked you to come up with some additional proposals for meeting the township’s subsidy reduction goal. What would you recommend?
