Harvester is heavily subsidized by the Town of Rocky Mount. FY 2016 was $289,310, FY 2017 was $331,146, and FY 2018 is $354,682.
The town plans to contribute less to the facility each year and eventually have it carry itself financially. The hope was that the Harvester would sustain itself in three years, and itís still on track to do so, Hankins said.
HA! The first 1-2 years they were losing $50,000 a MONTH!
Gov't can't do it right and shouldn't get involved. I love the Martinsville Mustangs, but they are the same exact thing on a smaller level.
