August financial report shows OPA well ahead of budget

“Obviously, we’re pleased with where we are at this point in the year,” General Manager John Viola said. “The Yacht Club continues to be a big part of our success, but Golf has also been a contributor, despite everything going on over at the course.  

The team continues to review all expenses monthly and looks to reallocate wherever we can to address headwinds,” he continued. “We are all committed to continuing this positive trend through the end of the year.” 

During August, the Association posted a positive operating fund variance of $151,301, with total revenues over budget by $105,665 and expenses below budget by $45,636.
