One of the items which gave the City Council much concern was the establishment of a new department within the City government for the operation of Bangor's new auditorium. A problem of particular complexity was presented to the Council in the matter of the establishment of a proposed rate schedule for the operation of the auditorium. A compilation of ordinances in auditoriums of comparable size in other areas was made and studied. It was felt by the Council that although the initial cost of the building, which was funded through a bond issue, and interest charges in connection therewith, should be borne by the general taxpayers, the annual cost of operation and maintenance should be borne by those who used the auditorium. The rate schedule adopted by the Council was calculated to provide such an amount and it has, in the operation of the auditorium to date, proven satisfactory.
