RECOMMENDATION

 

Staff recommends the City Council approve a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Downtown Business Association (DBA) for general maintenance services in downtown Culver City (Downtown) for the period July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022

 

 

BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

 

Since 2008, the City and the DBA have entered into memorandums of understanding, and amendments thereto, whereby the DBA has provided certain maintenance services in Downtown. Over the years, there have been adjustments to the maintenance services based on the needs of the City and DBA.

 

Staff recommends that the City continue its cooperative relationship with the DBA in providing the maintenance services within the Downtown by executing a new MOU with the same terms and conditions currently in place for FY 2020/2021, with the following changes:  (1) clarification that the indemnification provisions survive the termination of the MOU; and (2) changes to the insurance provisions to reflect the City’s updated standard insurance requirements.

 

The MOU with the DBA is beneficial to the City because it shifts oversight and accountability for the management of downtown maintenance services to the businesses directly affected by those services while also allowing for potential additional services at no cost to the City. The DBA utilizes a sub-contractor to perform the services and is reimbursed by the City on a monthly basis. The DBA uses any remaining funds to enhance existing services and to fund additional maintenance and beautification efforts. The proposed 2021/2022 MOU includes, among other services, the following maintenance tasks:

 

1. Sidewalk trash and recycling receptacles within the BID shall be wiped down daily. Sidewalk trash and recycling receptacles shall be emptied twice per day Monday - Thursday and three times per day Friday through Sunday at a minimum to avoid spillover; dispose all trash and recycling into dumpsters in the BID.

 

2. Pressure wash, at least once per month, Main Street, downtown sidewalks, Town Plaza, the downtown paseos adjacent to the Kirk Douglas Theater, the Watseka parking structure, and the Cardiff parking structure, trash enclosure area at the Kirk Douglas Theater, trash area behind ARCLight Theaters and the Canfield Parking lot.

 

3. Daily, perform basic maintenance tasks within the BID to include sweeping the sidewalks, curbs, and hotspots.

 

4. Remove trash, cigarette butts, weed and debris from tree wells and landscaped areas; sanitize and wipe down benches and furniture; remove stickers, graffiti, and flyers.

 

5. Provide extra trash and recycling receptacle maintenance, pressure washing services and other maintenance services as required for special events permitted in the BID.

 

Staff believes it is in the best interest of the City and the DBA to continue the MOU for Fiscal Year 2021/2022. In the event the MOU becomes disadvantageous to either of the parties, it may be revised by mutual agreement subject to approval of the City Council, or it may be terminated upon 30 days’ written notice. If the MOU is terminated for any reason, the DBA is required to return funds for any unperformed duties.

 

 

FISCAL ANALYSIS

 

If the City Council approves the new MOU, the City will transfer to the DBA a total of $98,720.00 during Fiscal Year 2021/2022 on a reimbursement basis. This amount has been included in the Fiscal Year 2021/2022 Budget (Acct. No. 101.60230.517500, 202.60400.517500 and 101.16100.517500)
