Albany -- Attendance at the Flint Riverquarium is up so far this year. Managers say it's thanks to their partnership with the city and county.

Through the first two-thirds of the fiscal year, the Riverquarium made 68-percent of its projected revenue for the year.

City commissioners are happy with the success so far, but still want to see more on how the attraction can eventually sustain itself.

"I would like to see that at some point they become independent of city funding. I need to see the planning efforts to increase their attendance, increase their revenue," City Manager, Alfred Lott.

The Flint Riverquarium is also about to get some money from the state. It was approved for a grant from the Department of Natural Resources for their "Go with the Flow" program.
