Drought Level I – City has less than a 2 year supply. 3. Drought Level II – City has less than an 18 month water supply. 4. Drought Level IV – City has less than a 1 year supply. Financial Impact: The water rate schedule is adjusted to include additional fees for excessive usage. As an example; for a residential account that uses over 10,000 gallons in a month, an additional fee of $3.50 per 1,000 gallons is added to usage between 10,000 and 19,000 gallons; an additional fee of $5.00 per 1,000 gallons for all usage between 20,000 and 29,000 gallons; and an additional fee of $8.00 per 1,000 gallons for all usage over 29,000 gallons. Related Vision Item (if applicable): None. Other Information/Recommendation: The City currently is limited to 12.2 million gallons per day (mgd) from Ivie Reservoir. As summer time water usage increases, 8 to 12 mgd will be utilized from Twin Buttes Reservoir to supply the typical daily municipal demand of 20 to 24 mgd. Under Drought Level II, outside watering is limited to once every seven days during the April 1 to October 31 period and once every 14 days from November 1 through March 31. It is recommended the resolution be adopted enacting the Drought Stage, Level II. Attachments: Resolution

  • 72. (1) Approve of the proposed abandonment;(2) Modify of the abandonment conditions to those believed to be more appropriate; or(3) Deny of the proposed abandonment.Recommendation: City staff recommends approving the proposed abandonment.City staff strongly recommends the property owner works with private utilities to resolveoutstanding issues regarding the placement of and relocation of utilitiesOn May 21, 2012 the Planning Commission recommended approving theabandonment by a vote of 7-0.History and Background:The pool, which led to this request, had initially been issued a permit in 1999,but it was never finalized and has subsequently expired. An initial inspectionregarding the electrical work for the pool had also taken place and was neverfinalized. Since this pool extends into an alley right-of-way, there is no way tofinalize these permits, or alleviate the situation, until the alley is abandoned orthe pool is reduced in size.General Information Existing Zoning: Single-Family Residential (RS-1) Existing Land Use: Alley between single family residences and AEP property which has power transmission lines.

  • 73. Access Management: Requires that utility easements be retained or utilities be relocated prior to abandonment Notification Required: Yes Notifications Sent: 15 Responses in Favor: 0 Responses in Opposition: 1Special Information Private Utilities: Suddenlink has indicated they need to retain the utility easement. AEP has indicated they need to retain the utility easement. Verizon has stated there is an existing utility easement between 3809 Honeysuckle and 3805 Honeysuckle. Verizon has two aerial cables and one large buried cable which are now under pavement along the pool. Verizon will need to maintain this easement and the easement in the alley for our existing buried cable. Any requirements to have overhead lines and buried lines rerouted will be at the owner’s expense. Any damages made to existing cables due to the pool construction prior to alley closure will be at owner’s expense. Traffic Concerns: Traffic patterns for this area should remain unaffected. This portion of alley has effectively been closed for several years now due to the encroachment of the swimming pool.City staff does not anticipate any issues with abandoning a segment of the alley.Generally alleys are abandoned in their entirety or not at all, but in this casestaff can recommend approval of just a portion of alleyway. This abandonmentwill directly affect one property owner and will effectively shorten an alreadydead-end alley by a distance of 32 feet. There are no municipal facilities withinthe abandonment area; however, several private utility companies have facilitieswithin the alley and/or an existing easement at the back of the property that willlikely need to be relocated. This relocation does not the affect the abandonmentof the alley and the relocation of these private utilities is the responsibility of theproperty owner. Although we recommend approval of the abandonment from amunicipal point of view, staff does reiterate that there are other issues that will

Alley Abandonment: David Aycock A request to partially abandon a segment of alley right-of-way on the following property: An approximately 15.64’ x 32’ portion of alley running east to west, parallel to Honeysuckle Lane in the College Hills West Addition, Section 6, Block 4, and immediately south of Lot 24 in southern San Angelo.Jeff Hintz, Planner, came forward to present this request, consistent with thestaff recommendation of approval. 15 notifications were sent out, with 1 inopposition. Mr. Hintz illustrated where the letter of opposition originated from.He noted that the lot current terminates at Lot 24, and was established this wayvia the plat. Staff’s recommendation of approval is, however, accompanied byan additional recommendation to the property owner to work with private utilitycompanies to remedy any encroachment issues. Mr. Hintz explained that thepermits for the pool had been pulled, but had never been finalized – had thishappened, as is the required permitting process, the violation would have beencaught and remedied at that time. However, it is essentially a problem that hasexisted for some time and was caught in the process of attempting a propertytransaction. All private utilities stated that they have utility easements in place,into which this pool encroaches.Bill Wynne asked if the easement is an aerial easement or an undergroundeasement. Jeff Hintz explained the easement is not either/or; rather, it is both.Joe Grimes asked if there was any evidence that there was utility placementunder the pool. Verizon has buried cable in the area that falls just underneaththe concrete deck around the pool. Jennifer Boggs asked about the trashpickup in the area, and asked for clarification of the ownership; specifically, isthe current owner the same owner that built the pool? Mr. Hintz explained thatthe owner now is a different owner.Al Torres, Building Official, came forward to speak regarding the permittingissue. Mr. Torres explained the inspection process and that an inspection wasnever finalized, and the permit remains in an expired state. The permit cannotbe closed until inspections that show all work is done correctly, has beencompleted. However, this cannot be done when part of the pool is on someoneelse’s property. Mr. Hintz answered more questions, explaining how this cameto staff’s attention. Bill Wynne stated he suspected this was a matter regardingtitles. Sam Tambunga confirmed that there are no recommended conditions aspart of the staff recommendation.The Chairman asked questions regarding the perceived “approval” of whattranspired with the pool. AJ Fawver explained that, just as with variances, thepresence or absence of a structure should not factor into the consideration ofthe request; rather, the merits of the case for that location (in this case, whetheror not it is in the best interests of the municipality to abandon) should always beexamined. In this case, regardless of the presence (or absence) of a pool

  • 81. City of San Angelo Employee Travel Expense Policy April 2012 Purpose This policy establishes guidelines for administering and accounting for travel expenses incurred by City of San Angelo employees who travel on authorized City business. Administration Directors, Managers, and all other personnel who travel on City business are responsible for the administration of this policy. IRS Regulations The City travel policy must follow specific rules relating to travel expense. It is designed to meet the IRS requirements for an accountable reimbursement plan. As such, this policy must include the following three rules.1. Expenses must be paid or incurred while performing services as an employee of the City of San Angelo.2. Expenses must be adequately accounted for within a reasonable period of time.3. Excess reimbursement or allowance must be returned within a reasonable period of time. Failure to follow the procedures in this policy violates the rules under IRS’s regulations. This may result in travel expenses and mileage reimbursements being classified as taxable income to the employee. Petty Cash Funds Travel expenses cannot be paid by individual departments out of petty cash funds. Only public safety employees are authorized to receive money for emergency travel out of departmental petty cash. Seminars, conferences, etc. are not considered emergency travel. Travel Advances An employee may obtain a travel advance to assist in his or her payment of expenses expected to be incurred on travel made for the City. No advance will be provided to employees that already have advances that are past due. The advancing of money for travel expenses does not constitute approval for the expenditure of the amount advanced. All expenditures must be authorized items. Travel advances are treated as a debt owed by the employee to the City until an itemized accounting is submitted. Employees are responsible for the repayment of excess advanced money over approved expenditures (i.e. advance equals $100.00, approved expenditures equal $80.00, employee must repay $20.00) If, upon completion of the trip, the traveler owes the City money, payment should be submitted along with the completed Travel Settlement Form to the cash receipts clerk in water billing. A receipt will be provided to document the repayment.
  • 82. Allowable Expenses The City of San Angelo will pay expenses incurred in the course of authorized City travel. Employees shall be entitled to accommodations and services which are reasonable, economical and meet quality standards for convenience, safety, and comfort. Employees are expected to exercise good judgment in distinguishing between comfort and extravagance. The following is intended as a general guide and is not necessarily all- inclusive. Discretion remains with the appropriate manager in approving expenses for unusual circumstances. Travel out of state must be approved in advance by the City Manager’s office. To be reimbursed, reasonable travel expenses must be properly documented, receipted and approved. Each employee is responsible for adhering to this policy when incurring expenditures on behalf of the City. Transportation City Vehicle – Employees are encouraged to use City vehicles for out-of-town travel. Credit cards are available from Purchasing for the purchase of gas, oil, or other routine supplies. These credit cards are available for use with City vehicles only. Receipts must be attached to the Travel Settlement Form. Personal Vehicle – If a City vehicle is not used, the City will reimburse out-of-town travel at the current mileage rate authorized by the IRS. Reimbursement will be based on miles from departure city to destination city plus five percent “in town” driving at the destination city. Mileage amounts can be obtained from the Rand McNally website at www.randmcnally.com. Google Maps at www.maps.google.com will be used for destinations not included on the Rand McNally website.Note: Employees who receive an auto allowance will receive a mileage reimbursement fortrips of 200 miles (round trip) or more only. Commercial Airline – Air travel can be utilized for trips when the cost (including local transportation costs) does not exceed the amount that would be paid for a mileage based reimbursement. Additionally, air travel must have the approval of the City Manager when circumstances place time constraints on the traveler. Only coach accommodations will be allowed. A proper receipt that shows dates of travel, destination city and the method and amount of payment must be submitted with the Travel Settlement Form. An internet reservation printed from a computer is not an adequate receipt of travel expenses. Rental Cars or Taxis – When air travel is used, expenses for rental cars or taxis will be reimbursed if transportation is necessary to conduct City business. Lodging The city will pay for the cost of lodging necessary for out-of-town travel. Luxury/resort accommodations will not be allowed. City employees should request a government rate when making reservations. An exit receipt is required from the motel/hotel and should be attached to the Travel Settlement Form.
  • 83. Meals and Incidental Expenses (M&IE)The IRS defines expenses in this category to include food, beverage, laundry, cleaning andpressing of clothing, and fees and tips for services. Incidental expenses do not includetaxicab fares, lodging taxes, or the cost of telegrams or telephone calls.A per diem will be paid for meals and incidental expenses incurred while traveling awayfrom home. Cost of meals and incidentals over the per diem rate will be the responsibility ofthe employee.The M&IE per diem rate for travel away from San Angelo is $46 per full day of travel. Foreachpartial day of travel, ¾ of the per diem rate is allowed. For example, an out-of-town seminar starts at noon Wednesday and runs to noonFriday: Wednesday’s per diem is $34.50 ($46 x ¾) Thursday’s per diem is $46.00 (full day) Friday’s per diem is $34.50 ($46 x ¾)The City will pay higher per diem rates for IRS approved cities. Accounting maintains a listof cities with their allowable rates. Check this list prior to processing your travel settlement.These rates are subject to change every year in October.RegistrationThe City will pay registration fees for an approved conference, seminar or meeting.

City of San AngeloMemoDate: June 19th, 2011To: Mayor and City Council membersFrom: AJ Fawver, Planning ManagerSubject: Limited prohibition of parking in yardsContact: AJ Fawver, Planning Manager 657-4210Caption: First Public Hearing and consideration of an Ordinance amending Chapter 8 (Offenses and Nuisances) in the Code of Ordinances, City of San Angelo AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 8 (OFFENSES AND NUISANCES) BY ADDING A NEW ARTICLE 8.1000 PROHIBITING PARKING OF VEHICLES ON UNIMPROVED SURFACES, IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS AND IN RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS OF SAN ANGELO; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING A PENALTY AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE____________________________________________________________________________________Summary: At the requests of Council members Adams and Alexander, staff members have put together a draft ordinance to address the issue of parking in residential yards, while at the same time recognizing that there are some circumstances which may render some areas more suitable for doing so than others. This item was presented for a vote on May 15th, 2012. At this time, the motion for approval failed by a vote of 3-3, with Hirschfeld, Morrison, and Silvas voting in opposition.History and Background:The issue of parking in residential yards was discussed in December of 2003, when amember of the Legal staff presented a draft ordinance which would prohibit parking in
  • 88. residential front yards. The City Council at that time decided to take no action and didnot change the regulations.In October of 2009, the matter was again presented for discussion by the DevelopmentCoordinator at that time. Discussion centered around what other cities did to regulatethe practice, and Council members asked that staff continue to look into the matter.Analysis:After meeting with Council members Adams and Alexander to discuss the matter, staffput together a draft ordinance which attempts to bridge the gap between the twoprevious discussions. While the 2003 discussion was with a different Council thatgenerally did not feel compelled to act, the 2009 discussion seemed to have oneconsensus: that the regulations, if pursued at some point, not prohibit this type of parkingentirely. Rather, it recognized that there might be some instances in which it should beallowed. Staff’s draft ordinance attempts to recognize such circumstances.Basically, this proposed ordinance prohibits the parking of vehicles on unimprovedsurfaces as a nuisance, with the following exceptions: (1) Parking in an area screened from public view with a fence or wall 6’ in height; (2) Parking in a rear yard not adjacent to a street right-of-way; (3) Residential lots on streets 30’ wide or narrower; (4) Parking of a vehicle with a valid handicapped license plate or mirror hanger.By using these guidelines, the following can occur: • Individuals living on narrow streets are allowed relief; • The vast majority of rear yards (which are generally adjacent to an alley right- of-way) are still available for parking; • Renters of residential property are penalized, and not the property owner(s); • Residents are given a six-month period to come into compliance before the ordinance goes into effect; • There is a wide variety of opportunities for property owners to create “paved” areas for parking in the front yards by offering a broad definition of paving, to
  • 89. include the following materials, the specific requirements of which are in the attached draft ordinance: • hot mix over an appropriate base material; • two-course penetration (two layers of crushed stone and asphalt); • reinforced concrete; • interlocking concrete paving stones over an appropriate base; or • compacted gravel, caliche or crushed rock with a minimum depth.Fiscal Impact: N/ARelated Vision Items: Establish appropriate regulations to protect neighborhoods Provide adequate amenities for all neighborhoods Cleaner neighborhoodsRecommendation: City staff recommends approval as presented; the various definitions and exceptions in the ordinance appear to address concerns discussed in previous discussions on this issue.Attachments: draft ordinancePublication: not applicablePresentation: AJ Fawver, Planning Manager

Here are the basic terms of the agreement: • Payment: Annually $7,000, for an 8-year term = $56,000 in total. • Terms: a family season pass to the pool, which is for both parents and their 4 kids and two private parties at the pool during the season. • Some signage around the pool and at the entrance, and referenced in press release as Love Municipal Pool. History: There is no direct history on this specific item. On June 1, 2010, the Council approved a naming rights services agreement with Citywise Marketing, giving the local firm the exclusive right to market naming rights to City facilities. The San Angelo Municipal Pool has recently been completely renovated with mostly 4B half-cent sales tax funds. Financial Impact: The City incurs no expense with this proposal. In keeping with its contract, Citywise earns a 35% commission on a sales price of $56,000. That means the City will receive $4,550 annually, while Citywise, which performed all of the legwork and will continue to administer the contract, earns $2,450. Related Vision Item: N/A Other Information/ The naming rights signs will be relatively small and will maintain the pool’s historic Recommendation: appearance.

  • 113. City of San Angelo Civic Events DivisionMemo Date: June 1, 2012 To: Mayor and Councilmembers From: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager Subject: Agenda Item for June 19, 2012, Council Meeting Contact: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager, 234-0014 Caption: Regular Item Consideration of approving adjusted rental rates for the large and north meeting rooms, and kitchen use fees at the McNease Convention Center. Costs have increased in the four-plus years since rental rates at the Convention Center were set. A comparison of the Convention Center’s rates against those of Summary: other local and regional venues found the facility is undervalued. Staff has crafted – and the Civic Events Advisory Board backs – a proposal that would keep the Convention Center as the cost-effective venue in West Texas while generating more revenue to support its maintenance and operations. History: Rental rates for the McNease Convention Center were last adjusted prior to the venue reopening, following its renovation, in April 2008. A recent review of other local venues and similar facilities in Abilene and Midland found the Convention Center is undervalued. In some instances, that’s because other venues charge less for the room, but charge extra for each table, chair, microphone, stage section, etc., that is used. By comparison, the Convention Center charges a turnkey rate that is easier to administer and for the customer to understand, and keeps customers from feeling as if they are being nicked financially at every turn. Staff has crafted a proposal that will ensure the Convention Center remains the community’s most cost-effective venue option while generating more revenue that will help maintain, operate and support the facility. The proposal is as follows: • Large Meeting Room: Non-commercial non-fundraiser rates that apply to private events would increase to $500 for 1/3 of the ballroom, $1,000 for 2/3 and $1,500 for the full space. That equates to increases of $100, $200 and $300, respectively. Non-commercial fundraiser rates that apply to events such as non-profit dinners and banquets would increase to $550 for 1/3 of the ballroom, $1,100 for 2/3 and $1,650 for the full space. Again, that equates to increases of $100, $200 and $300, respectively. Also, Saturday bookings in the Large Meeting Room would require use of the full room. This is an effort to maximize revenues on the highest- demand day for the highest-demand space. Staff is convinced we can easily find customers willing to rent the full space on Saturdays.
  • 114. • North Meeting Room: The North Meeting Room is the Convention Center’s second-most popular space because of its amenities: a wide-ope layout, direct access to restrooms, direct egress outside, proximity to the kitchen, and board room paneling. Rates for the room would rise to $200 for 1/3 of its use, $400 for 2/3 and $600 for the full space. That equates to increases of $50, $100 and $1500, respectively. Half-day rates would increase to $125 for 1/3 of the ballroom, $250 for 2/3 and $300 for the full space. The first two rates are higher than exactly half of the full day rate so the half-day rates in the upstairs rooms, which offer fewer amenities, are slightly less. • Kitchen: We have allowed private users limited use of the kitchen, but rarely do those users leave it in the same condition in which they found it. This proposal includes a $100 kitchen fee for anyone other than City- approved caterers who use the kitchen. This would include access to ice, RO water, refrigerators, warmers and food preparation tables; cooking would not be allowed. Staff is not proposing any changes to convention rates. We do not want to do anything that will diminish San Angelo’s competitiveness for attracting conventions that boost the local economy. Those events also contribute more hotel occupancy taxes to Civic Events than to private events and fundraisers.Financial Impact: The recommendation to require full rentals on Saturdays in the Large Meeting Room in 2011 would have generated an additional $5,600 in revenue under the current rates. That figure rises to $7,000 if the proposed rates are applied. Those figures represent 5.1% and 6.4% of budgeted revenue, and 4.2% and 5.6% of actual revenue. (Of the 46 Saturday ballroom rentals in 2011, 10 used either 1/3 or 2/3 of the room, equating to 22% of the rentals using less than the full space.) As of June 7, 48 of the 52 Saturdays in 2012 have been booked in the Large Meeting Room. (This figure changes weekly as events are dropped and added.) Of those, three have booked 2/3 of the space and five have booked 1/3 of the room; that equates to 17% of Saturday rentals using less than the full space. Applying current rates, $5,200 in revenue has been lost – 4.2% of budgeted revenue and 2.7% of projected revenue. If proposed rates are applied, the loss would be $6,500 or 5.2% of budgeted revenue and 3.4% of projected revenue.Related Vision Item N/A(if applicable):Other Information/ Staff recommends approval of the rental rate adjustments detailed above, effectiveRecommendation: Oct. 1. The Civic Events Advisory Board approved this proposal by a 4-2 vote. (Bob Banskter and Frank White voted against the proposal; Courtney Mahaffey was absent from the meeting.) Rita Carranco, owner of Celebraciones Bellas, which coordinates many of the weddings and quinceaneras in the Convention Center, told the Civic Events Advisory Board the venue is undervalued considering what lessees get for the price. She noted that quinceaneras typically cost $15,000-$25,000 and weddings more than that, and that a $300 increase in the venue will not, in her opinion, drive away business. If this recommendation is approved, the McNease Convention Center would remain the most affordable venue of its kind in West Texas and would still

  • 116. City of San Angelo Civic Events DivisionMemo Date: June 4, 2012 To: Mayor and Councilmembers From: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager Subject: Agenda Item for June 19, 2012, Council Meeting Contact: Anthony Wilson, Civic Events Manager, 234-0014 Caption: Regular Item Consideration of approving a new rental rate structure for Pecan Creek Pavilion and designating the resulting increased revenues for capital improvements at the facility. Demand for the use of Pecan Creek Pavilion continues to rise, as does the need to improve the facility. Staff is proposing a tiered rate structure in which weekday Summary: usage is less expensive than weekday usage, and individuals pay less than businesses. The increased revenue would then be designated specifically for capital improvements at Pecan Creek Pavilion. History: The demand for Pecan Creek Pavilion has risen since the Civic Events Division assumed the booking, contract and event staffing for the facility in 2009. In an effort to ensure that the venue’s rental rate is not undervalued, that Civic Events’ administrative costs are covered, and that the pavilion can generate enough revenue to fund improvements to it, staff recently conducted an analysis of costs and of rates at similar facilities. There is only one other lakeside property in San Angelo that is available for rental. Cain’s Cove, at 3338 Jaycee Road near Middle Concho Park, is a privately owned two-acre facility with a lakeside gazebo and patio, indoor and outdoor dance floors, seating for 200, a full kitchen and a dressing room. It rents for $3,350 from Friday morning through Sunday morning in the spring and summer. That does not include a sound system, linens, table settings, etc. Pecan Creek Pavilion, 8455 Country Club Road, rents for $250 per day (8 a.m.- midnight). The only other costs are insurance, which ranges from $47.21 to $154.50, depending upon the event size and whether alcohol is served, and uniformed security at $30/hour for alcohol events. The pavilion’s amenities include an indoor space with seating for up to 180, a full kitchen and private restrooms, a covered porch, boat ramp, a huge barbecue pit, picnic tables, a playground, sand and grass volleyball courts, outdoor restrooms, and horseshoe and washer pits. Because of that wealth of amenities – and the low rental rates – the venue has been “loved to death.” Lake Operations, which maintains the facility, has identified more than $37,000 of needed repairs (including a new septic tank and the replacement of the perimeter fence) and nearly $10,000 in appliances that need to be replaced. That does not include the replacement of outdated playground equipment (at a cost of Adopted: 5/30/03 Revised: 6/21/10
  • 117. about $75,000) and the planting of a treeline that could screen the facility from the neighborhood across the street (a $10,000 expense). Pecan Creek Pavilion is a Water Department facility. While Lake Operations, which is funded by the water fund, provides the maintenance, Civic Events handles the booking, contracting and staffing of the facility. Civic Events is compensated at a rate of $45 for each booking. Last year, Pecan Creek Pavilion generated $23,004 in revenue compared to $11,373 the year before Civic Events began administering the bookings in early 2009. (At that same time, the City Council raised the daily rate from $125 to $250.) Of the total FY11 revenue, Civic Events kept $5,860 to cover our costs. Civic Events has calculated its administrative costs – based upon two hours per event plus mileage -- at approximately $53.57 per booking. Pecan Creek Pavilion is booked virtually every weekend from early spring through late fall. (As of June 7, the next available Saturday was in November.) Anecdotally, Lori Davila, who handles the contracting for the venue, says no one ever complains about the price. Last year, the pavilion generated 79 rentals. Of those, 56 were by individuals and 23 by businesses. All but 12 of the 2011 rentals were on Fridays-Sundays. As of June 7, we have had 89 rentals/bookings this year, all but nine of which are on the weekends. Staff has crafted a rate structure based upon user types (individuals vs. business) and when the usage of the facility occurs (high-demand weekend days vs. low-demand weekdays). Thus, weekday uses by families would pay the lowest rate (the current price of $250 per day) while businesses would pay the highest rate for weekend usage.Financial Impact: Currently, there are no expense accounts in either the Water Fund or the Lake Operations budgets related specifically to Pecan Creek Pavilion. That will change in the FY13 budget when expense accounts designated solely for the pavilion will be established. Once that’s done, we will have a concrete understanding of the facility’s costs in future years. Lake Operations estimates direct operating and maintenance costs of $7,500 annually, which mainly covers supplies. Utilities cost another $3,000. The seasonal employee who staffs events costs about $1,000 per year. Civic Events’ administrative costs and mileage are about $5,000 per year. Additionally, the estimated 882 man- hours that Lake Ops spent maintaining the venue last year (mostly grounds-keeping) represents an indirect cost of approximately $18,000. All totaled, those direct and indirect costs add up to about $34,500. Last year, the venue generated $23,004 in revenue – a deficit of about $11,000. Of that, Civic Events recouped $5,860 of its costs. If the proposed rates were applied, the venue would have generated an additional $10,150 in FY11. If the new rates were applied to this year’s bookings to date, they would generate another $9,250.Related Vision Item N/A(if applicable):Other Information/ Staff recommends the following rate structure:
  • 118. Recommendation: • Individual/family use Mondays-Thursdays $250 • Individual/family use Fridays-Sundays $350 • Business use Mondays-Thursdays $400 • Business use Fridays-Sundays $500 The proposed rate structure would allow price-conscious families to rent the venue for the current rate on weekdays, which could increase weekday rentals. The structure also would generate more revenue on the highest-demand days of Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. In her draft of the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan, Lauren Shrum of Texas Outdoors Consulting writes, “A facelift to the facility is needed and more competitive rental rates should be implemented.” Further, we would propose that Civic Events recover $65 from each rental for administrative costs, up from $45. This would ensure all of Civic Events’ costs are covered and generate a slight amount of revenue for the service provided to the Water Department in administering the bookings, contracting and events. The Civic Events Board, in approving staff’s recommendation by a 6-0 vote (board member Courtney Mahaffey was absent from the meeting) on May 31, the Board also recommended that the increased revenue generated by higher rental rates be designated only for capital improvements at the facility. Staff also endorses that idea, which will ensure a reinvestment in the pavilion.Attachments:Presentation: PowerPointPublication: N/AReviewed by Carl White, Parks and Recreation Director, 234-1724Director: Will Wilde, Water Utilities Director, 657-4209 Shane Kelton, Assistant Director of Operations, 234-7285Approved by Legal: N/A
