STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution authorizes a lease agreement between the city and Northwoods Children’s Services and provides for retail vending and concession operations within the Park Point Beach House Building, located at 5000 Minnesota Avenue in Duluth, Minnesota.
This agreement shall be effective for year 2007 with the operating season from May 15 through September 30. According to the agreement, Northwoods Children’s Services will be responsible for concessions from approximately the first Thursday in June through Labor Day, with minimum concession hours of 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m., seven days per week. The lease agreement provides the city with five percent of total gross receipts from all concession retail sales.
In October of 2006, the city published a request for proposals (RFP) in the Duluth News Tribune, but received no offers. Then, in December of 2006, the Parks and recreation department sent a letter to 11 vendors, inviting them to submit RFPs no later than December 22, 2006. Northwoods Children’s Services and Bernick’s Pepsi, both located in Duluth, were the only two who responded.
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.
