Background Discussion

The Board of County Commissioners approved the solicitation of a small dollar concession for the Sunday Market at Coquina Beach Gulf Side Park - Market Vendor Coordinator on January 8, 2013. 

Accordingly the Procurement Division issued Request for Proposal 13-0606FL which yielded one (1) proposal from Ambrose Services, Inc., Holmes Beach, FL.   The County negotiated an Agreement with Ambrose Services, Inc. to perform as a market vendor coordinator for a period of two years. Prior to final approval and execution of the agreement, the Bradenton Beach Commission and Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce indicated their support of the provision of these services at Coquina Beach Gulf Side Park.

Ambrose Services, Inc., performed satisfactorily during the initial two (2) year term of the Agreement, which began on February 14, 2014.  The Agreement provides for automatic one (1) year renewal unless either party provides its notice of cancellation.

The County and Ambrose Services, Inc. desire to incorporate the additional terms outlined in the First Amendment (attached) into the Agreement.  The additional terms include adding Wednesday to the market schedule for the months of December through April and providing for compensation to the County for the additional service day.  In addition, there is a new requirement which requires submission of an annual financial accounting report by Ambrose Services.  Clarification is made to better define site and site requirements, operational and service hours, and signage requirements.
