The board that oversees James Brown Arena and Bell Auditorium on Tuesday increased the incentive pay to management firm Global Spectrum after including a board member’s late evaluation of the firm.

Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority member and musician Joseph Collier said he had faxed in his review after missing the September meeting.

Its inclusion brought the firm’s benchmark-based incentive pay up a few hundred dollars, to more than $25,000, board attorney Ed Enoch said.

“He must have given them a good grade,” said the board’s treasurer, David Hogg.

Enoch said he had given Global Spectrum a report of the board members’ input at the firm’s request.

Now in its third year managing the city-owned entertainment facilities, Global Spectrum and concessions firm Ovations set a record for concession sales during the Sept. 29 Jason Aldean show.

Ovations sold about $78,000 worth of
food and beverages during the show, Global Spec­trum General Manager Monty Jones said.

Helping the facilities break even is the addition of a white roof coating that’s expected to save energy costs.

Jones said the coating costs much less than the $1.1 million price tag for a new roof.
