BY COUNCILOR EDWARDS:00-0502R
RESOLUTION APPROVING THE EXEMPTION OF A RAFFLE LICENSE TO LAKE SUPERIOR MARINE MUSEUM ASSOCIATION.
WHEREAS, the Lake Superior Marine Museum Association has applied to the Minnesota gambling control board for a lawful gambling exemption (raffle); and
WHEREAS, the Duluth City Council has received a copy of said exemption application to the Minnesota gambling control board and has 60 days in which to present a resolution to said Minnesota gambling control board objecting to the exemption application; and
WHEREAS, the city council approves of the exemption application and wishes to waive the 60 day waiting period.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Duluth City Council hereby approves of the Minnesota gambling control board issuing a lawful gambling exemption to the Lake Superior Marine Museum Association and does hereby waive the 60 day waiting period which it has to object to the issuance of said exemption.
RESOLVED FURTHER, that the
city clerk is hereby authorized and directed to send a copy of this resolution
to the Minnesota gambling control board immediately after its passage.
Mary George was present on
behalf of the application. She explained that this raffle was the organization's
large fundraiser and the grand prize would be a trip on an ore boat for
three couples. Ms. George reviewed that although the raffle drawing was
next summer, they are requesting a waiver of the 60 days in order to be
able to sell tickets to the tourists this summer also. To the board's inquiry,
Ms. George replied that the tickets would sell for $10 each. There being
no further discussion, Mr. Willman moved THAT THE 60 DAY WAIVER REQUEST
FOR LAKE SUPERIOR MARINE MUSEUM ASSOCIATION BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE
RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Hendrickson seconded
the motion, and it was unanimously approved.
