The Clerk presented to the Board of Commissioners for discussion a proposed agreement with On Your Mark Productions, Inc., as submitted from Commission Cabrera, to provide event promotions in 2006, specifically the “Wheelin’ Through the Wildwoods” and “Crest Adventure Race and Relay,” at the not to exceed amount of $11,500. The Clerk indicated that there will be no “up front” fees to be paid to the vendor. Mrs. Gould inquired if there will be a triathalon in North Wildwood in 2006. Mr. Cabrera responded that there is one scheduled in North Wildwood, but it is a different type of race. Mrs. Gould inquired as to how many participants North Wildwood had in their race in 2005. Mr. Cabrera responded that it was approximately 200. The Clerk interjected that there are additional costs to be incurred by the Borough with regard to these two events, beyond the total $11,500 in contract costs, because the proposed Event Promoter is responsible for administering the coordination of the events, but the actual costs and in-kind services to be provided will have to be borne by the Borough. Mrs. Gould inquired if sponsors will be needed. Mr. Cabrera responded that there will be participation fees charged, as well as sponsorship fees and funding through the Tourism Commission and GWTIDA. Mr. Cabrera added that it will be necessary to make a decision as quickly as possible in order to have the two events on the tourism calendars. Mrs. Gould asked when GWTIDA will be granting the funding. Mr. Cabrera responded that it is traditionally done in November or December, but the application was delayed. He added that he has had verbal communications with GWTIDA personnel but has had no firm commitment to date. Mr. Groon stated his opinion that the contract should be approved. The Clerk inquired who would be responsible for seeking sponsorships by vendors. Mr. Cabrera responded that local sponsors would be contacted by Borough representatives at the local level. Mrs. Gould agreed with Mr. Groon that “it is worth a try.”

Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Groon, that the following Resolution be adopted.

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

RESOLUTION NO. 180-06

(Authorizing a Professional Services Contract with On Your Mark Productions, Inc.

for a not to exceed amount of $11,500)

 

The Clerk reported to the Commissioners that the Hydrofest administrator has been advised that the Tourism Development Commission monies in the amount of $5,000 that was previously provided for the event would continue to be provided, but the Borough will not be providing the $5,000 from the 2006 budget. He added that the Borough will continue to endorse the event and the in-kind services will continue to be provided by the Borough.

 

There being no public comments, THE CLERK READ THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION BY TITLE ONLY:

RESOLUTION NO. 181-06

(Closed session – potential litigation and negotiations)

 

Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Groon, that the foregoing Resolution be adopted.

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

 

Upon returning from closed session, there being no additional matters for discussion, Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Cabrera, that the meeting be adjourned.
