City seeks ice rink tenant

Michael Schneider

The South Lake City Council Tuesday will review the Parks and Recreation Commission proposal to find a tenant for the South Tahoe Ice Center.

Recreation Superintendent Judy Crawford said the requests for proposals probably will be mailed Wednesday to prospective developers.

Thirty days later, the council will review bids. A recommendation may be forthcoming in late July or early August.

Crawford said Parks Superintendent Steve Weiss has compiled a list of industry developers who build ice rinks. He will send the RFPs to them as well as advertise for developers on the Internet.

The request, in its current, non-council-approved form, holds these minimum requirements for successful bids:

— The minimum bid for annual operation is $18,000 or 5 percent of gross profit, whichever is greater, per budget year, October 1 through September 30.

— In addition to the annual minimum bid, a payment schedule for the existing site improvements should be included which is over and above the annual operation bid.

— The proposal also must include provisions for payment of the security fencing and relocation of the main water line together totaling $35,000.

— The city of South Lake Tahoe reserves the right to reject any or all proposals.

What: South Lake Tahoe City Council meeting

When: Tuesday, May 19, 6 p.m.
