RE: AMENDING HOMER CITY CODE 1.74, PARKS AND RECREATION ADVISORY COMMISSION
During the regular meeting the Commission discussed the need to be able to accept donations for repairs and much needed equipment at the city owned parks due to the overall economical picture it was unlikely to get funding in future budgets. Below is an excerpt of those minutes:
B. Amending Homer City Code 1.74, Allowing the Commission to Accept Donations
and Establish a Fund to Deposit the Donations.
1. Memorandum from Deputy City Clerk Krause dated May 11, 2011
Chair Bremicker summarized the memorandum and requested input from staff.
HARRALD/LILLIBRIDGE -MOVED TO REQUEST A DRAFT ORDINANCE AMENDING HOMER CITY CODE 1.74 ALLOWING THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT AND THE COMMISSION TO SOLICIT FOR AND ACCEPT DONATIONS AND ESTABLISH A FUND TO DEPOSIT THOSE DONATIONS.
A brief discussion on the process that was required and what steps the Commission needed to take to allow them to accept donations. It was stated that the Adopt A Program was a good venue but this changed the City Code allowing the Commission and Department accept donations following the examples for the Library and Public Arts Committee. The request will be sent through the City Clerk to the City Attorney to draft the Ordinance. It will be on the June agenda.
VOTE. YES. NON-OBJECTION. UNANIMOUS CONSENT.
There was no further discussion.
