CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 18

Meeting Date: March 27, 2001

Subject/Title: Request for Cornfest Support

Submitted by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager



RECOMMENDATION
Motion to support the request of the Brentwood Cornfest Committee for sponsorship support of $50,000 funding to be included in the 2001-02 City Budget.

PREVIOUS ACTION
The City has annually supported the Cornfest event sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.

COMMENTS
Beginning last year the City set in place an approach where the City contributed funds ($50,000) to the Cornfest and then billed them following the Cornfest for City services provided including Police, Garbage and Public Works. In 2000 the City billed the Cornfest $ 34,791.56 and this was paid back to the City.

In the past, the city funded events such as the Fireworks Program itself, now those costs and related work is done by the Cornfest Committee.

In exchange for this level of support from the City, we receive space for tables in the Info Alley at no cost. These tables have been staffed by volunteers from City staff, the Neighborhood Committee and others, as they desire.

The Economic Development Subcommittee recommends this for approval.
