BY COUNCILORS STAUBER, STEWART AND STOVER:
BE IT RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement an agreement, containing substantially the same terms as that on file with the city clerk as Public Document No. __________, between the city and Arrowhead Bowhunters Alliance, for an amount not to exceed actual, approved costs or the revenues generated by the annual deer hunt, whichever is less.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Resolution 05-0306 is amended by adding a paragraph (k) to read as follows:
(k) The total number of certified hunters participating and the number allowed to hunt in any area shall be limited to that needed to attain the objective and that can do so safely, as determined by the manager of the hunt. If there are more qualified hunters than are needed, a lottery or similar fair process shall be used to select which individuals will participate.
The manager of the hunt shall assign certified hunters to hunting areas which shall be done by a lottery or similar fair process.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution contracts with a qualified non-profit to manage the deer hunt. It also provides for a lottery to choose hunters if too many apply for permits, which is similar to what Mn/DNR does.
