really didnt the bust at the pony happen before the drug bust lol so I doubt autumn said anything to contribute to the ponys problem I know 4 other girls who were sent packing after they tried some illegal stuff with some of the patrons, of course I am sure the pony will say that the girls are indepenant comtractors and they arent responsible but they are responsible because they hired them, maybe if the dancers had to apply for a permit to work there and back ground checks were actually done there wouldnt be so many whore s hired

Very disappointing that this happened at The Pony. This certainly does not help Jerry Westlund's case against the city because now the city can argue the secondary effects of this business. I think Jerry should sue the perpetrators for this and i think that every employee who had anything to do with this type of behaviour should be fired. make an example out of them Jerry!

At least The Pony is generating income for this city in a time when the casino can't. I bet our elected officials have no problem with that at all.
I saw your post from a previous topix and I was wondering since you are so involved with the city,could you please inform the public just how much revenue has the pony brought in since they opened 11 months ago?I believe wpsd tv said that Harrahs was bringing around 500,000 or so a month since January of 2011,based on your previous statement the Pony must be generating more then that please let us know what you find out

Just like any other business in metro The Pony does NOT report the revenue it generates to the city. The reason why we hear so much about casino revenue is that the city gets a percentage of the casino's revenue. Outside of asking Jerry Westlund himself there really is no way to find out how much income they have generated in the city besides the cost of the liquor license. However, i may be able to ask someone who works with jerry about this. Will post if and when i find out.

Thank You for checking into this, I myself thought that it wasnt possible to pin point a number, basically the liquior license is not real expensive and since they dont use it, they really arent generating anything but a few jobs which the jobs are good but it isnt a strong income base for Metro, I do appreciate your looking it up though
