entered into a 20-year lease agreement. This grants the Cyclones the exclusive rights to use KeySpan Park on Surf Avenue
in Brooklyn. This audit determined whether the Cyclones complied with their lease agreement with the City; paid
the appropriate fees to the City and whether they paid them on time. The Cyclones paid the City $1,131,196 in rental
fees and Parks paid the Cyclones $200,000
related to net parking lot income. Audit findings include the significant weakness in the Cyclones internal controls
that prevented the determination of whether actual attendance, no-shows, and recreated area attendees were reported
accurately, and whether all appropriate fees due the City were paid. The Cyclones did not report $98,600 recorded on
their books as rent revenue, therefore owe the City $49,300 in additional fees. The audit recommends to base actual
attendance on their turnstile counts, as required by the lease, along with other recommendations.
