|CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 25
Meeting Date: December 11, 2007
Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution authorizing the City Manager or designee to enter into a Concession Agreement with Ribeye's Market for concession services at Sunset Park Athletic Complex.
Prepared by: Sue Barry, Recreation Supervisor
Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation
Adopt a Resolution authorizing the City Manager or designee to enter into a Concession Agreement with Ribeye's Market for concession services at Sunset Park Athletic Complex.
On March 8, 2005 City Council approved a Professional Services Agreement with Bay Area Vending Company for concession services at Sunset Park Athletic Complex.
The service agreement with Bay Area Vending Company, Inc. was terminated on December 31, 2006 for breach of the terms of the contract. Parks and Recreation staff operated the concession services selling pre-packaged goods as an interim service to the community from January through December 2007.
In May 2007, staff prepared and mailed 23 requests for proposal and advertised in the local newspaper. No proposals were received for this request for proposal.
In September 2007, staff prepared and mailed 27 requests for proposals, and advertised in the local newspaper. During the proposal process, staff met with potential vendors and fielded questions regarding the electrical supply and flooring. A clarification letter was mailed to all 27 interested vendors and the deadline for proposals was extended for an additional two weeks.
Two proposals were received, scored and ranked in accordance with the selection criteria by a selection committee comprised of one member from each of the following City departments: Finance, Community Development, and Parks and Recreation. Ribeye’s Market was the top proposer based on the review.
The only fiscal impact at this time is the cost of utilities in the operation of concession services which are included in the 2007-08 Operating Budget. The monthly commission collected from concession sales will be deposited in the Sunset Park Athletic Complex account to offset park operation expenses.
