Motion to approve the Amended and Restated Franchise License Agreement ("Agreement") between Manatee County and United Park Services, Inc. (UPS) for Operations and Management of Concessions at County Facilities at Coquina Beach, and to authorize the County Administrator or his designee to execute the Agreement.
Manatee County Code 2-24-11
On June 22, 2010, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved the franchise license agreement for the Operations and Management of Concessions at County Facilities at Coquina Beach with United Park Services (UPS) Inc. for a period of five (5) years. In accordance with the franchise license agreement (Agreement) UPS provides operation and upkeep of the concession and surrounding grounds.
UPS performed satisfactorily during the initial term of the Agreement. The Agreement allowed up to two (2) five year renewal terms at the same terms and conditions of the current Agreement. However, the County and UPS agreed to engage in renegotiating certain terms and conditions of the Agreement in order to address items contractually and enhance the Agreement to better serve the general public.
In summary, the following terms and conditions are provided for in the attached Amended and Restated Franchise License Agreement.
To create equitability for the partners, the compensation is updated to require twelve and one-half percent (12.5%) of monthly gross sales less sales tax. One and one-half percent (1.5%) of the monthly compensation will be retained by the County for capital investment improvements.
The Amended and Restated Franchise License Agreement for Coquina Beach Concession is effective for five (5) years commencing on March 1, 2017, and ending February 28, 2022. There is one (1) renewal option to renew for five (5) additional years upon mutual consent of the parties.
