COUNCIL BILL __________________

title

AN ORDINANCE relating to the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation; authorizing the Superintendent of Parks and Recreation to execute for and on behalf of the City an amendment to the existing Seacrest Boathouse Concession Agreement with Marination LLC, originally authorized by Ordinance 124112; authorizing the Superintendent to execute future amendments relating to concession fees as the Superintendent determines to be in the best interest of the City; and ratifying and confirming certain prior acts.

body

WHEREAS, Ordinance 124112, passed in February 2013, authorized the Superintendent of the Department of Parks and Recreation (“Superintendent”) to enter into a six-year Concession Agreement (“Concession Agreement”) with Marination LLC; and

WHEREAS, under the Concession Agreement, Marination LLC provided over $200,000 in capital improvements to the Seacrest Boathouse and currently manages and operates the Seacrest Boathouse as a restaurant and boat and recreation equipment rental facility for the public; and

WHEREAS, the payment to the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) in the current Concession Agreement requires Marination LLC to pay a monthly concession fee of ten percent of gross sales to DPR; and

WHEREAS, Marination LLC notified DPR that continuing to pay this ten-percent concession fee is unsustainable and will put its business operation at risk going forward and requested the Superintendent lower the concession fee to be more in line with market rates; and

WHEREAS, the Superintendent determined that it would be in the best interest of DPR to amend the Concession Agreement and modify the concession fees to ensure a sustainable concession remains in the Seacrest location, and determined that the impact of this action will not significantly impact revenues to DPR; and

WHEREAS, the Superintendent and Marination LLC expressly intend that upon authorization from this ordinance and signature by an authorized representative of both parties, certain concession fee terms of the Concession Agreement with Marination LLC shall be changed and retroactively effective as of the dates provided for in such amendment; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF SEATTLE AS FOLLOWS:

Section 2. The Superintendent is authorized to negotiate future amendments to the Concession Agreement with Marination LLC for the purpose of adjusting the concession fees due from Marination LLC as the Mayor or Superintendent deems to be in the best interest of the City.
