Submitted by: Karen Diaz, Deputy City Manager/City Clerk
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve an allocation not to exceed $30,000 for sponsorship of the 2002 Cornfest.
This item was introduced at the March 12, 2001 Council meeting and was continued for the purpose of allowing an Ad Hoc Committee, consisting of Councilmembers Beckstrand and Hill, to meet with the Cornfest Committee to address items of concern.
Beginning with Cornfest 2000, the City established the procedure of contributing funds to the Chamber of Commerce for the Cornfest and then billing back for city services provided during the event.
The Ad Hoc Committee met on April 1, 2002. The Committee recommends that the $30,000 be distributed in the following manner:
· A $10,000 credit toward city services; i.e., police, public works, etc. Cornfest will be invoiced for city services in excess of the $10,000 credit.
· Sponsorship of the fireworks in an amount not to exceed $20,000.
The funds are included in the Economic Development Budget.
