5. PETITIONS, REQUESTS AND COMMUNICATIONS
(a) REQUEST BY CHAMBER'S TOURISM DEPARTMENT TO APPROVE THEIR 2001 BUDGET AS REQUIRED BY ROOM TAX GUIDELINES AND ANNUAL REPORT.
City Manager Wilmet introduced Carrie Chisholm, the Tourism Manager of the Fort Atkinson Chamber of Commerce. She and the Council reviewed the Annual Report and proposed 2001 Tourism Budget.
Discussion was held regarding the Tourism office wanting to measure the effectiveness of their more targeted advertising effort by tracking increased sales in our dining establishments, higher occupancy in our hotels, and more requests for information through out 1-888 line, visitors center, and web site. Carrie stated that she is working on developing a procedure that the restaurant owners can work with to help track where their customers are coming from and why, without burdening the busy owners with another difficult report to be filled out.
It was also noted that the actual revenues for 2000 have come in far less than was budgeted. (Budget was set at $59,800 and the actual through Dec. 1 is $43,114.) Ms. Chisholm explained that this is primarily do to the fact that the new Holiday Inn Express did not open for business as early in the year as had been predicted. Ms. Chisholm further explained that she took a more conservative approach to the 2001 budget and set income expectations at $50,000.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to accept the Annual Report by the Chamber's Tourism Department and to adopt their 2001 budget. On call of the roll, the motion carried unanimously.
7. REPORTS OF OFFICERS, BOARDS AND COMMITTEES
(a) ACCEPTING MINUTES AND REPORTS FROM VARIOUS BOARDS AND COMMITTEES.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to accept the minutes of the Planning Commission meeting held November 28, 2000. The motion carried on a voice vote.
(a) RECOMMENDATION FROM PLANNING COMMISSION TO APPROVE PRELIMINARY CERTIFIED SURVEY MAP CREATING ONE LOT ON CHRISTIE COURT (EXTRA-TERRITORIAL).
City Manager Wilmet explained that this preliminary certified survey map was unanimously approved by the Plan Commission.
Cm. Gray, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the Preliminary C.S.M. creating one lot on Christie Court (extra-territorial). The motion carried on a voice vote.
(a) REVIEW AND APPROVE BIDS FOR PURCHASE OF TWO POLICE VEHICLES FOR 2001 AS BUDGETED.
City Manager Wilmet reported that the Police Department solicited bids for two police package vehicles to be purchased in 2001. The City Manager explained that this has historically been done in December of the preceding year due to the lead times needed to get the vehicles. The bids were opened on November 27, 2000 at 1:00 p.m. and the following bids were received:
Kayser Ford, Inc.
2001 Crown Victoria 4 door police package sedans $41,558.00
2001 Crown Victoria 4 door police package sedans $41,400.00
Smith Motors, Inc.
2001 Impala 4 door police package sedans $37,590.00
Cm. Zastrow asked Chief Brus if the Impala was comparable to the Crown Victoria.
Chief Brus stated that the Chevy Impala was comparable and has been tested by the State Patrol of Michigan for the last year. The Chief stated that he knows of several communities that are using the Chevy Impala.
The Chief also explained that since the bid for the vehicles is less than the $42,000 budgeted, the department would also like permission to purchase a rear seat insert, a screen/cage adaptor, and a headlight flasher for each vehicle. If the Smith Motors bid is approved, it would bring the total cost for the two vehicles to $38,690.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the low bid from Smith Motors, Inc. for 2 Chevy Impala 4 door police package sedans at a cost of $37,590 and to approve the purchase of screen/cage adaptors and headlight flashers for a grand total of $38,690.
