WHEREAS, Madison General Ordinances Sec. 8.17 allows for a person to obtain an annual parks vending permit, valid from April 15 of each year through April 14 of the following year, to allow the person to sell foods, beverages, goods, services and lessons in a City park; and,

WHEREAS, the vendors provide services to City residents and visitors, such as canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing and sailboat lessons and rental, and general concessions, that the City does not, and cannot, otherwise provide at these, or other, locations, but which are in the public’s interest; and,

 

WHEREAS, it is in the City’s interest to have only one vendor of these recreational and concession services at each Park to ensure that general public use of the Park is not interfered with, and that the vendor complies with general standards of safety and care in its dealings with the public; and,

 

WHEREAS, in order to find the vendor who can best provide these recreational and concession services at Warner Park, consistent with City standards and interests, in 2010 the City issued a Request for Proposals for the Right to Conduct Rental, Instructional Service and Concession Activities at Select City Parks, including Warner Park; and,

 

WHEREAS, in 2010 The Madison Sailing Center’s proposal, and permit application under MGO 8.17, was accepted by the City, and confirmed by the Board of Park Commissioners, and The Madison Sailing Center successfully provided recreational and concession services at Warner Park from 2010-2012 and from 2013-2015, pursuant to an Operating Agreement with the City; and,

 

WHEREAS, the City and The Madison Sailing Center wish to reenter into an operating agreement that would allow The Madison Sailing Center to continue to provide recreational and concession services at Warner Park.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Mayor and City Clerk are authorized to enter into an Operating Agreement with Robert Krebs d/b/a The Madison Sailing Center for use of the sailboat storage area at Warner Park and to conduct rental, instructional and concession activities for the years of 2016-2018, with two additional one-year renewals, consistent with the Warner Park Sailboat Storage and Instruction Operating Agreement attached and incorporated hereto, in a format that is approved by the City Attorney and the Risk Manager.
