After my report Tuesday ahead of that day’s groundbreaking for the city of Camden’s new tennis complex, I noticed that our link to the story on our Facebook page generated some comments showing there may be some misunderstanding about how money works in government. Believe me, it’s a confusing topic and one of the hardest to understand as a reporter and, therefore, pass on to readers. As I’ve reported, the money being used to build the complex is a combination of hospitality tax bond funds and money from the city’s capital and paving improvement funds.
