Golf Course Advertising.

(Action Needed Agenda Item)

**** Agenda Item #1: Information from the City of Needles: ****

– Title:

Trade Out Advertising Agreement with News West Publishing.

– Background:

Since 1993, the City has had a “Trade Out Agreement” with News West Publishing whereby the golf course receives 1/8 page weekly advertising in the Entertainer in exchange for annual golf and cart passes.

– Fiscal Impact:

Contract cost to place the 1/8 page 52-week ad in the Entertainer is $150.00 per week. The total annual cost for advertising is $7,800. ($150°52) The cost of an annual pass without a cart pass = $1,050 and the cost of an annual pass with a cart = $1,300. News West requests two annual golf passes without a cart pass and two annual passes with a cart pass for a total annual cost of $4,700. ($1,050*2+$1,300°2) The total savings to the City will be $3,100.

– Recommendation:

Move to approve the annual self-renewing “Trade Out” Advertising Agreement with News West Publishing.

– Submitted By:

Rainie Torrance.

**** Agenda Item #2: Information from the City of Needles: ****

– Title:

River’s Edge Golf Course Operations RFP.

– Background:

The Parks and Recreation Commission requested a proposal for the privatization of the municipal golf course operation. Assistance was sought from the US Golf Association and other communities that have privatized. Attached is a very preliminary draft of a public solicitation for the Commission’s discussion. The attached Draft RFP is not intended to be a proposal, but instead to identify the process and issues that would need to be addressed.

In summary, the proposal would contract with a private firm to maintain the course and operate the pro shop and cart services.
