Staff Summary: The Carson City Arts Alliance, Inc. formerly changed their name to the Brewery Arts Center some time ago and this amendment would reflect that change. The City is required to maintain certain levels of insurance for liability and damage as determined by the insurance provider and therefore requires parties that lease City facilities or property to have the same coverage.

C) Action to approve subleasing a portion of the Brewery Arts Center to Scotty's Family Restaurant to operate a café subject to the terms of the amended lease between Carson City and the Brewery Arts Center.

Western Nevada College (WNC) is embarking on their inaugural women's collegiate softball season. They have requested the use of Field No.6 at JohnD Winters Centennial Park as their practice and game venue. The College is requesting use of the field for their spring semester of 2009 starting January 12, 2009, through April of 2009 and for their fall season beginning in September of 2009. There is a possibility that a tournament could be held at the field in May of 2009. Supervision at the games will be supplied by WNC. WNC agrees to pay the City 25% of the proceeds from ticket sales during their games. In addition, the City will run and operate the concession stand during the games and will retain all proceeds derived from concession sales during the softball games.

With that in mind, City staff has applied for and been awarded Question-1 grant funding from the State of Nevada, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of State Lands to be used towards trail improvements and site amenities at the Fulstone Wetlands. Board of Supervisors approval of the funding agreement will allow City staff to proceed with finalizing the construction documents and bid this project in the summer of 2009.

C) Discussion and possible action regarding the terms of the 2007 Agreement between RSVP and Carson City. 

Staff Summary: RSVP believes that the terms of the agreement are not being applied correctly and that the allocation that RSVP receives from the City's Community Support funds should be increased to the levels prior to the agreement.
