RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING AN AMENDED AND RESTATED SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH THE DULUTH POLICE EXPLORER POST 244 AND THE DULUTH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (DEDA) FOR PARKING SERVICES DURING THE BAYFRONT BLUES FEST.

CITY PROPOSAL:

     RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are hereby authorized to enter into an amended and restated agreement for parking services, substantially in the form of that on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. ____________, with the Duluth Police Explorer Post 244 (the Explorers) and DEDA for parking on DEDA-owned and city-owned lots at Bayfront during the Bayfront Blues Festival, 75 percent of the net proceeds to be retained by the Explorers and 25 percent of the net proceeds from city-owned Lot A to be deposited into Fund 237-015-4623, and 25 percent of the net proceeds from DEDA-owned Lot C to be paid to DEDA.


DEDA/ATTY


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  On June 19, 2008, the council passed Resolution 08-0375 authorizing an agreement with the Explorers to provide parking services at the city-owned Parking Lot A, also known as the Playfront Parking Lot, during the Bayfront Blues Festival. The Explorers were also to provide parking services at the DEDA-owned parking lots C and D. DEDA-owned Lot B will provide parking for production-related vehicles and police and fire, and will be administered by the Blues Fest.


In the meantime, DEDA was approached by Lake Superior Warehousing which wants to use Lot D to store windmill parts. The company will pay rent to DEDA and will make some improvements not only to Lot D but also to Lot C which will allow for additional parking there.


This resolution authorizes an amended and restated agreement with the Explorers which replaces the previously approved agreement and which eliminates Lot D from the area where the Explorers may park cars during the Blues Fest.
