City Council will decide whether or not to enter into a 7-year agreement with Pepsi to provide exclusive beverage pouring rights at Ellsworth Meadows Golf Club at its meeting on Wednesday.
Trent Wash, the manager/superintendent at Ellsworth Meadows, stated in a memo to council that the city has contracted with Pepsi for the past 13 years. The contract was set to expire at the end of December last year, and bid documents were advertised in December.
Several council members at a recent workshop questioned whether there had been other bids, in light of the long duration of the agreement.
Wash said that the only response received was from Pepsi, and that a representative from Coke was not able to meet the deadline provided.
Included in the proposed agreement is a one-time, up front payment of $12,000, with a rebate and incentive funding commitment of $40,604 over the life of the contract, which would run until December 31, 2019.
Wash described the relationship with Pepsi as "favorable and successful."
In other business, council will consider a resolution authorizing an amendment to a community reinvestment area agreement with Face-Off LLC for property at 6333 Hudson Crossing Parkway.
Council will also have before it an ordinance to certify the total cost to date of nuisance abatement at 131 Keswick Drive in the amount of $84,383.60, and to have that amount placed as a special assessment on the property owner's tax duplicate for collection in one annual installment.
The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the town hall.
