City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 08/15/2017  
Subject:    Consider Resolution 17-91 Establishing 2017-2018 Coon Rapids Ice Center Rental Rates
Submitted For: Tim Himmer From: Sarah Greene, Administrative Assistant II

Staff asks the City Council to consider proposed 2017 - 2018 ice rental fees for the Coon Rapids Ice Center.
Fees for hourly ice rentals, services and activities were last reviewed and approved by City Council at its August 16, 2016 meeting, prior to the beginning of the 2016-2017 skating season. The attached 2017 Market Study of surrounding arenas shows a variety of results, with a majority of arenas increasing prime season hourly ice fees by $5. 

The City’s current and proposed hourly ice rental rates are as follows:
  Current Proposed
Winter Prime (September – March) $195 $200
Winter Non-Prime (September – March, Off-Peak Hours) $150 $155
Spring / Summer (April – August) $150 $155
Outdoor Ice (Public) $80 $80
Outdoor Ice (CRYHA) $75 $75

The above revisions are proposed to position the Ice Center competitively with local hourly rates. Staff believes these revisions are justified to remain competitive with other area arenas, keep us consistent with other area association and arena agreements, maintain our state of the art facility, and help offset operational costs.

2017-18 User contracts reflecting these new rates have been sent out for review and execution, and are anticipated to be on the September 5, 2017 City Council agenda for approval.
Staff recommends City Council adopt Resolution No. 17-91, establishing 2017-2018 ice rental rates for the Coon Rapids Ice Center.
