TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to execute a lease with Beach Ventures Enterprises, Inc., a California corporation, for the purpose of providing food, beverage, and equipment rental concessions for a five-year term, with two, five-year renewal options, at the discretion of the City Manager or his designee.

DISCUSSION

In 1996, the City Council authorized the City Manager to execute a contract for the operation of four food, beverage, and equipment rental concessions along the Long Beach coast. The contract expired at the end of 2008, and the incumbent was allowed to operate on a month-to-month basis while the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine (PRM) inspected each site to determine required code compliance upgrades.
