  38. 38. Current Asset Worth at Fleury(these are only estimates for extended season and for discussion purposes only)<br />Cost of courts = $400,000<br />Cost of land = $400,000<br />Fleury Asset Worth - $800,000<br />Cost per play day is $800,000/90 days = $8,888<br />Renovate Asset cost is $800,000+$600,000/240 days = $6,250 or a 30% decrease – link to Town Plan re.
