On Expenditures and Expenses: Prior year and current 2013 figures may be drastically different due to allocating expenses to correct G/L accounts (Ex: postage broken away from office expense correctly);

On Regular Salaries Increase: Other Compensation, which included part-time deputy commissioner and an accountant in prior years, has been replaced by 2 unclassified part-time positions to regular salaries.

The Mixed Martial Arts ring sport has seemingly hit it's peak and we notice a decline in booked shows in latter 2013 and 2014 which is why we have noted a decrease in revenue budgeting for 2014/2015.
