NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that based upon a review of the responses to the RFP and the potential services that will be in the best interests of the City, the Mayor is authorized to sign a License Agreement with Hudson Sloop Club Inc., in the amount of $6,400.00 of which $2,000 shall be a cash payment upon signing the contract; $1,700 shall be an in-kind contribution for the installation and removal of city docks. The balance of $2,700.00 shall be in-kind services of managing the dock. The in-kind management services shall include, but not be limited to, making the dock available for two boats operated by Hudson Cruises (pontoon boat Lil Spirit and Spirit of Hudson). The Sloop Club shall work with Hudson Cruises to make the dock available for the vessel Marika to the extent practicable consistent with the Sloop Club's use of the dock for community purposes. The City shall establish the fees that will be charged to vessels other than those operated by the Sloop Club with the first $3,700 of revenue to be split 90/10 between the Sloop Club and the City; with the next $2,700 of revenue split 70/30 between the Sloop Club and the City and any revenue above $6,400 to be split equally between the Sloop Club and the City.
The resolution passed with all the members of the Council voting in favor except for Dominic Merante (Fifth Ward) and Shershah Mizan (Third Ward), both of whom abstained. There apparently is no assurance that Hudson Cruises will agree to continue to operate Spirit of Hudson and Lil Spirit from the Hudson dock.
