Venuworks Management Agreement Ex‑
tension
Resolved, that the Common Council
adopt Addendum #3 to the Management
Agreement with VENUWORKS extend‑
ing the current agreement for the ongoing
management and operations of Festival
Hall, Festival Park and Memorial Hall for
a period of 18‑months, through June 30,
2019, including therewith the extra services
for support of the proposed event center.
Fiscal Note: The Contract extension
proposed would continue the same terms for
compensation to VENUWORKS. The cur‑
rent terms of the Management Agreement
with VENUWORKS requires the City to
pay VENUWORKS a yearly “base man‑
agement fee” of $70,000, adjusted upward
each January 1st following 2013, by the an‑
nual change in the Consumer Price Index.
In addition, VENUWORKS can (and has)
achieve(d) additional yearly “variable fees”
which are performance‑based and equal to
no greater than 50% of the subsidy savings
they can achieve year‑over‑year. The City
has budgeted for these fees in advance. To
the extent VENUWOPRKS continues to
achieve year‑over‑year subsidy savings, the
city will see its budget for the Civic Centre
continue to decline. The additional sup‑
port services associated with acquiring
Naming Rights for the event center and
assisting with the final term‑sheet for the
USHL Franchisee anchor‑tenant, will be
done without additional charge other than
any actual out‑of‑pocket expenses incurred
by VENUWORKS; as well as should the
City not continue to contract with VENU‑
WORKS following the 18‑month exten‑
sion, we would then be obligated to pay
a lump‑sum total of $25,000. This is in
comparison to proposals from other similar,
national venue consultants/naming rights
firms who quoted non‑refundable retainers
of $35,000, whether successful or not, and
commissions up to 22 ½% if successful.
