Every year thousands of visitors come to Abilene and when they check into a hotel or motel they pay a venue tax of 2 percent.
In Abilene, a committee decides where that money goes based on necessity.
Currently, it is distributed to three areas. Frontier Texas! receives the largest amount, followed by the Taylor County Expo Center, then Abilene ISD.
On Wednesday, the Venue Tax Board is expected to release the final disbursement of the venue tax to the district meant for upgrades at Shotwell Stadium.
Among the improvements will be the parking lot at Shotwell.
"Even though Shotwell Stadium is owned by the school district, it is used by the community and it attracts visitors for playoff games and that sort. At the time when Shotwell needed improvements we were parking on dirt and gravel," AISD spokesman Phil Ashby said.
AISD officials said they knew once the improvements were complete, they would no longer receive money.
Their portion will now go to paying off bonds accumulated during the improvements.
Frontier Texas! and the Expo Center will not see a change in their share of venue tax for several years.
"The primary improvements that the venue tax was originally planned to accommodate are complete, so now ,it's just a matter of paying off the bonds," Ashby said.
After the bonds are paid, the remaining venue tax will be split with 60 percent for Frontier Texas! and 40 percent for the Expo Center.
The bonds are scheduled to be paid off in 2024.
