PURPOSE

 

The purpose of the item is for the Leon Valley City Council to consider and possibly take action on an ordinance to amend the Leon Valley Code of Ordinance, Appendix "A", Section A2.004 (a) which will include an employee discount of $50.00 on rental fees only at the Community Center. This discount is already given to Leon Valley residents.  It will simply be extended to employee's usage as well. 

 

SEE LEON VALLEY

 

Social Equity -To promote the same usage and booking benefits of the facility to City of Leon Valley Employees.

 

Environmental Stewardship:  N/A

 

Economic Development: The discount will expand the use of the Community Center and will increase revenue as well as becoming a desirable destination for City of Leon Valley employees to host their personal events.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

 

Employees have rented the facility in the past and have asked about fees this past year.  If employees rented the facility on open days, it will generate revenue that the City would not have had if not rented. On the other hand, if an employee rents at a reduced rate, then the City risks the rental reduction if a renter tries to book that exact date. 

 

STRATEGIC GOALS

 

The request is consistent with Leon Valley's strategic goal of promoting economic development in that employees who live outside of Leon Valley would bring in outside residents to the community for events.
