A RESOLUTION concerning

FOR                     the purpose of identifying City Sponsored Special Events; and waiving certain related City Fees during Fiscal Year 2021.

 

 

WHEREAS,                     Section 14.18.020 of the City Code defines a “City Sponsored Event” as “a special event that:

1.                     the city council approves by resolution as a city sponsored event;

2.                      enures solely to the benefit of the public, with no profit or emolument to the City to thereby serve a governmental function; and

3.                      benefits the public health, safety and welfare to thereby serve a governmental purpose”; and

 

WHEREAS,                     Section 6.04.210 of the City Code states that “whenever a person leases, uses or occupies a City facility, the person shall be charged and pay a minimum of full fees for the use of the facility.” Examples of City facilities include public spaces, grounds, parks, athletic facilities, fields, docks, piers, wet slips, moorings, developable waters, buildings, motor vehicles, equipment, structures, rooms or other parts of public buildings. Examples of City services include traffic control, crowd control, public safety support (police or fire), trash removal, sanitary services, recycling, bulk pick-up, the provision of water, sewer, electricity, communications or other utilities, transportation, and labor. Full fees “means the value of the right to lease, use or occupy the City facility as determined by the Finance Director in a fiscal impact note, plus all costs incurred by the City of Annapolis including, but not limited to, utility costs and costs associated with municipal services (public safety, public works, custodial, renovations, repairs, maintenance, transportation and parking)”; and

 

WHEREAS,                     Section 6.04.210 of the City Code further states that the fees for City Services may be waived “by resolution of the City Council pursuant to guidelines approved by the City Council.”
