Title

Consider Community Event In-Kind Grant Support.

 

Body

Action Requested:

The Northfield City Council:

1.                     Approves in-kind community grant support and events (as of June 30, 2021) as shown on attachment 1;

2.                     Determines that the events 1) promote the health, safety and welfare of the city, and 2) do not have as its primary objective the benefit of a private interest; and

3.                     Authorizes staff to enter into license agreements with event sponsors using the City’s cooperative license agreement template for community events.

 

Summary Report:

The 2021 budget includes $46,500 for community event in-kind grant support.  To-date, the City has received sixteen community event applications.  Many of these events are still in the review process and will be on upcoming meeting agendas for consideration.   

 

The community events page on the City’s website contains the policy and related information and can be viewed here: <http://www.ci.northfield.mn.us/Index.aspx?NID=628> or through the link in attachment 2.

 

In 2015, Council authorized staff to enter into license agreements with event sponsors using the City’s standard cooperative license agreement template for community events.  As noted above, this process is proposed for 2021.  Other than minor technical updates, the agreement template has remained the same.

 

Additional approvals and requests for in-kind grant support will be brought to Council at a future date.  Requested deviations from the community events policy or standard license agreement will be brought back to Council for review and consideration.

 

Alternative Options:

City Council could modify or deny the proposed in-kind grant awards.

 

Financial Impacts:                     

The 2021 budget includes $46,500 for community event in-kind grant support.  The requests to-date total $4,745 as shown on attachment 1.
