Staff is requesting City Council approve the Agreement for Umpire Services for the City of DeBary Kickball Leagues.
This request is needed at this time to provide the framework for securing Umpire Services for the City of DeBary Kickball Leagues starting January 1, 2018 and ending September 30, 2018 with the option of two one year renewals upon mutual consent.
The current agreement for Umpire Services has expired. Coupled with the fact the league has grown from five (5) teams to sixteen (16) teams per season definite changes in the Agreement were called for. The scope of services have been more clearly defined for both parties. Upon approval of this Agreeement staff will reach out to all the Umpire Associations serving the local communities and ask for them to respond if they are willing to provide Umpire Services per this Agreement. Funding for Umpire Services has already been approved and provided for under Contract Services in the current year budget. The previous agreement was sent out for response two years ago with five Umpire Associations resonding negatively due to lack of resources to provide additional services to DeBary. The West Volusia Athletic Club responded in the affirmative and
has provided Umpire Services for the last two years with favorable success. It is expected that they will respond once again to the call for services.
Approve the Agreement as written to allow staff to pursue an Association that can and will provide Umpire Services for the ever expanding Kickball Leagues of the City of DeBary.
