The Albany Parks and Recreation Department is asking for money so they can book events at the facility.
Parks and Rec believe the city could make some money if they were bringing in various acts but some commissioners are skeptical about the plan.
"When we bring a successful show to Albany it will be the City of Albany putting on the show so all the revenue generated from that show will go back to the City of Albany," Joel Holmes said.
"That plan is a step in the right direction but I don't think we as a city should totally focus bringing events to the civic center," Jon Howard.
If the plan does get approval from the city commission, promoters will still be able book events at the Civic Center.
