Comments from the Floor:
Concessions for 2018 seasons
The Park and Recreation Department is exploring options as to how to change the way our concession stands are operated. It has been discussed to change it back to how it was ran before we rented out the concession stands to an outside company. The Park Board all agreed they would like for the individual sports teams to run concession at Yellig Park for the season and rent out the concession to an outside party for tournaments. Tom Lange, who represents the little league baseball program, said if we would waive the player fees associated with playing the sport then he would do the scheduling of parents to run concessions. ACTION: Park Director Dilger will contact all of the other directors of the sports at Yellig Park to see if this would be the consensus among all of them. Tom Lange agreed that if the Town would adjust their ordinance on player fees and get rid of them then he would come up with a schedule of parents to work, then the Town could keep 100% of the profits. Park Director Dilger would be responsible for buying the product for the weeknight games for little league. ACTION: Park Director Dilger is to contact Kevin Patmore regarding if the Town of Santa Claus would need an employee working in the concession stand at the same time as a parent. Park Board President Linne made a motion to have individual sports teams run concession if they all agreed, and if the Town Council agreed to drop the player fees. ACTION: Park Director Dilger will also ask about the Park and Recreation Special Fund to see if this would be where they could purchase product out of since we have no money appropriated in the concession supplies fund for 2018. Park Director Dilger also explained what all would be expected for tournament concessions to Kevin Klosowski and Chris Middleton and Danita Grosvenor. He also gave them Section 1 and 2 of the concession contracts that explains what all is expected and he gave them the dates of the tournaments as well.
