AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           November 13, 2006

 

From:                          Bruce Ericson, Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution Authorizing an Agreement with BASS LLC to host  the 2006 BASS Wildcard Tournament November 16 – 18, 2006.

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of an agreement with BASS LLC to host the BASS Wildcard Tournament November 16 – 18, 2006.

 

Analysis:

Historically, the Chamber of Commerce has hosted the fishing tournaments through BASS, Crappie Masters, and Crappie USA.  However, in 2006 the Chamber made a decision not to host the tournaments. Consequently, the City of Leesburg has assumed this role through the Parks & Recreation Department because of the economic impact and National exposure they bring to the area.

 

The 2006 BASS Wildcard Tournament, November 16 – 18, 2006 had previously been contracted with the Chamber.  This contract has been revised naming the City of Leesburg as the host for the tournament.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution authorizing an agreement with BASS LLC or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The City’s portion of the fee will not exceed $10,000.  Additional support services will not exceed $5,000 and include City Staff, meals, telephone lines, portable bathrooms and security.
