Subject/Title: Authorize the City Manager to enter into a contract with Robert Taylor to provide concession services at the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex

Submitted by: Ken DeSilva, Park Services Manager
Craig Bronzan, Director of Parks & Recreation

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager

Approve the City Manager to enter into a contract with Robert Taylor to provide concession services at the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex.

On April 26, 2001, the Parks & Recreation Commission accepted a recommendation for Parks & Recreation Dept. staff to negotiate with Mr. Robert Taylor to offer food services at the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex. 


On March 28, 2001, the City of Brentwood Parks and Recreation Dept. sent out a request for proposal for concession services at Sunset Sports Complex and the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex. The request for proposal was sent to nine vendors. Mr. Robert Taylor is the only concessionaire that responded. Mr. Taylor’s proposal is to provide concessionaire service at the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex only. On April 26, Parks & Recreation Dept. staff re-issued the request for proposal to the remaining vendors in an effort to obtain a proposal for concession services at Sunset Sports Complex. Proposals are due to the City Clerk by 
May 18, 2001.

Concession services at the Family Aquatic Complex are intended to be a short-term measure until the commercial pads are operational. As a result, staff is requesting approval to move forward with an agreement to provide an additional source of revenue for the Family Aquatic Complex.
