Surcharge pitched for events at Brown County facilities to pay for maintenance

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Brown County is starting to talk about a possible surcharge on tickets for events held at the Resch Center, Shopko Hall and Brown County Arena. 

An estimated 536,000 people came through the doors at those facilities last year and Supervisor Tom Lund is proposing a possible one dollar ticket surcharge. 

"If we did a $1 surcharge we would generate over $500,000 for maintenance," Lund said.

The idea was presented for the first time at the Brown County Education and Recreation Committee Thursday night as a way to increase funding for maintenance and upgrades that have been lagging over the years. 

However, the facilities’ management PMI Entertainment spokesman Terry Charles says tickets range in price.

"If you're going to say a $1 across the board that would be a big increase for $5 ticket as opposed to a $100 ticket," Charles said.
