Enabling/Regulating Authority

Ordinance 14-13 Maintaining/Operating Convention Center Facilities

Rate Resolution 00-86 as amended Policies/Procedures/Rate Schedule for Convention Center facilities

Background Discussion
  • Suncoast Gun Show, long-time licensee of the Convention Center, would like to donate 85, new cherry laminate, 8 foot long tables, valued at $15,902.65
  • Convention Center currently does not inventory enough tables to set the entire gun show without modification to the set up or providing outsourced equipment.
  • These 85 tables would complete the inventory needed for the gun show set up, as well as enhance our inventory for all licensees.
  • The Convention Center will discount the donated 85 tables to the gun show at 50% off during the remaining 2015 and 2016 contracts.
