18. Motion to Approve Municipal Sponsorship Ordinance to Create Rules and Guidelines for Soliciting and Receiving Sponsorship Opportunities
Strategic Priority
Good Government

The Municipal Sponsorship Ordinance will create a formal process for the City to receive, review, and approve sponsorship opportunities.This process will ensure that sponsorships are fair, consistent, and provide a positive impact on City services, facilities, property, or programs.

The proposed ordinance would divide sponsorships into two categories based upon how they are received:

  • Solicited sponsorships are received through a competitive procurement process and must follow all current procurement laws and regulations.
  • Unsolicited sponsorships, or a sponsorship proposal submitted outside of a competitive process, will be reviewed by a committee comprised of subject-matter experts appointed by the City Manager. The committee will decide whether to accept the proposal, open up a similar proposal to a competitive procurement process, or reject the proposal. 

All sponsorships will require City Council approval.
