Title

Authorizing a Snow Equipment and City Property Use Agreement with Madison Nordic Ski Club, Inc. for 2015-2018.

Body

WHEREAS, the City of Madison Parks Division provides opportunities for winter recreational activities, including cross country skiing and sledding, at various City parks, including, specifically Elver Park, and as part of providing this amenity to parks users the City owns certain equipment used for winter activities, including snow making machines and groomers (“Snow Equipment”); and,

 

WHEREAS, the Madison Nordic Ski Club, Inc. (“Ski Club”) is a private non-profit club consisting of City and area residents who together organize cross-country skiing races, maintain cross country ski trails, provide ski lessons, support high school and junior skiers, raise funds for projects (including for the City to purchase Snow Equipment), and provide assistance with the Madison Winter Festival; and,

 

WHEREAS, the Club wishes to enter into a formal agreement to use the City’s Snow Equipment to make snow for the Winter Festival and at Elver Park, and to groom the City’s cross country ski trails at Elver Park and other approved locations, which use will benefit the City by providing a greater level of service than the Parks Division is able to provide; and,

 

WHEREAS, the Club also wishes to use City facilities at Elver Park to store some of its own Snow Equipment for easier use in providing grooming services at Elver Park.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Mayor and the Clerk are authorized to enter into a snow equipment and City property use agreement with the Ski Club to allow the Ski Club to use the City’s Snow Equipment, including, specifically, the City’s snow makers and groomers, to groom the City’s cross country skiing trails, and to store Club equipment at Elver Park; and,

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the agreement shall be for a three-year period, from 2015 through 2018, with the option of one three-year renewal, in a form that is approved by the City Attorney and Risk Manager and on terms consistent with the attached Snow Equipment and City Property Use Agreement.
