               WHEREAS, The adopted FY 2014 Operating Budget contains an appropriation and transfer of $51,000 to the Homer Chamber of Commerce; and

 

               WHEREAS, The appropriated funds are located within the Economic Development Budget because the City views the Chamber as a contractor that is providing marketing and other economic development services; and

               WHEREAS, It is common and appropriate for there to be a contract or formal agreement between the City and a business or organization providing contracted services; and

 

               WHEREAS, The City and the Chamber of Commerce have collaborated on a Draft Economic Development and Tourism Marketing Agreement which formalizes the relationship between the parties and expands the Chamber’s marketing and economic development efforts to other sectors of the economy; and

 

               WHEREAS, The Agreement makes it clear that marketing is what the Chamber is staffed for and does best and that the bulk of its expanded economic development effort will be marketing additional sectors of the economy and Homer generally as a great place to live and establish your business; and

 

               WHEREAS, The Homer City Council reviewed the Draft Economic Development and Tourism Marketing Agreement at its regular meeting on January 27, 2014.

               NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Homer City Council hereby approves the Economic Development and Tourism Marketing Agreement between the City of Homer and the Homer Chamber of Commerce; a copy of which is attached and incorporated herein.
