BY COUNCILOR REINERT:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement an agreement with Willard Enterprises, Inc., for year 2007 (with four one-year renewal options), providing for the lease and operation of the Indian Point Campground, located at 7000 Pulaski Street; said agreement to be substantially in the form of Public Document No. ____________ on file in the office of the city clerk; said monies to be deposited into General Fund 0100, Department/Agency 400, Organization 1812, Revenue Source 4626.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes a lease and operating agreement between the city and Willard Enterprises, Inc., for the Indian Point Campground, located at 7000 Pulaski Street in Duluth, Minnesota.
The current agreement has expired and the city administration desires to continue its relationship with Willard Enterprises, Inc. The new agreement provides the city with various percentages of revenues received, depending on the source.
In November 2006, the city published a request for proposals (RFP) in the newspaper, but received only one proposal from Willard Enterprises, Inc. Resolution 07-0054 was submitted to the city council, but returned to the administration February 12, 2007, when it was determined that outdated information was inadvertently used in the RFP document. The city published another request for proposals in the newspaper. Four vendors were invited to submit RFPs; Willard Enterprises, Inc., was the only respondent.
This agreement would authorize the city to renew the agreement on an annual basis for five years commencing in 2007 and expiring December 31, 2011.
