AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           December 11, 2006

 

From:                          Bruce Ericson, Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution Authorizing an Agreement with Crappie Masters Inc. to host the Crappie Masters State Tournament January 26 – 27, 2007.

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of an agreement with Crappie Masters Inc. to host the Crappie Masters State Tournament January 26 – 27, 2007.

 

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 2007 Crappie Masters State Tournament, January 26 – 27, 2007 is the first fishing tournament to be hosted by the City of Leesburg in 2007.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the resolution authorizing an agreement with Crappie Masters Inc. or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The City’s portion of the fee will not exceed $5,000.  Additional support services will not exceed $2,000 and include City Staff, meals, telephone lines, portable bathrooms and security.
