BY PRESIDENT STOVER:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to enter into an agreement, substantially the same as that on file with the clerk as Public Document No. __________________, between the city and Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa for operation of a parking concession at the parking ramp adjacent to the Fond du Luth Casino for years 2008, 2009, 2010 for a fee of $185,000 per year from Parking Fund 505-015-1480-2511-5307.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Currently, the city operates its parking ramp next to the casino on a limited time basis. Because the casino operates 24 hours per day, some who use the ramp do not pay. By entering into this arrangement with FDL, the revenues from the ramp should increase. The city will not lay off ramp workers as a result of this arrangement. The parties will confer after the first of the year to decide if changes to the contract are in order.
