  Item No. 24.       
Regular City Council Meeting
Meeting Date: 03/14/2019  
COMMITTEE:    General Service  
CONTACT:    CHAIR:   

ACTION REQUESTED:
Consider approval of the Pecos League of Baseball Clubs (Roswell Invaders) lease agreement (Roebuck/Holloman)
BACKGROUND:
The Pecos League of Baseball Clubs hosts a season for the Roswell Invaders team each summer here in Roswell. For this activity, the group leases Joe Bauman Stadium at Coca-Cola Field per our current field rental rates. The included agreement includes terms for multi-year use of this facility so that a new lease agreement does not need to be approved each season. 
 
Additionally, the City has applied for and will receive a governmental alcohol license in March for this property. The agreement includes language related to the sale of alcohol, allowing the Invaders to sell alcohol during games and the expected amount of revenue to be given to the City for this activity. 
 
Once this lease is approved, it will be submitted to the State with the alcohol lease application currently pending for the Invaders. We hope that this approval will come in time for the 2019 season. The lease is essential for the completion of the State approval of the lease application to allow the Invaders to sell alcohol.
FINANCIAL CONSIDERATION
In addition to the fees collected for rental of the facility, the alcohol revenue will be collected. The alcohol revenue will be new revenue to the City.
LEGAL REVIEW:
The City Attorney has reviewed the Lease Agreement.
BOARD AND COMMITTEE ACTION:
The General Services Committee failed to recommend the Lease Agreement at its meeting on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 after a tie vote of two to two.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the Pecos League of Baseball Clubs (Roswell Invaders) Lease Agreement.
