RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING A GOLF PROFESSIONAL AGREEMENT FOR OPERATION OF LESTER PARK GOLF COURSE WITH PAUL SHINTZ, INC., FOR UP TO $90,000 IN COMPENSATION PLUS OPERATING EXPENSES.

BY COUNCILOR STAUBER:

     RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement a contract between the city of Duluth and Paul Schintz, Inc., substantially the same as that on file with the clerk as Public Document No. __________, for services as a golf professional in operating Lester Park Golf Course, for compensation of $45,000, possible performance incentive payments of $45,000, and reimbursement of operating expenses; payment to be made from Fund 503, Agency 400, Organization LSTR.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  This resolution authorizes a contract with a golf pro. The golf pro will operate the Lester Park Golf Course, food concession, golf club and golf cart rental, driving range, pro shop and related activities. The city will pay $45,000 in salary and a percent of sales not to exceed $45,000. The city will buy inventory and pay for operating expenses, including cost of pro’s employees. The contract replaces and supercedes the contract approved in 2005 by clarifying the pro’s status as an independent contractor and more specifically providing the pro with management and control of the operations defined in the contract.
