INTRODUCTION
The City Council is asked to accept donations for the 2019 calendar year from several businesses as part of the Business Sponsorship Program.
DISCUSSION
The City of Coon Rapids launched a new Business Sponsorship Program in 2019 to encourage partnerships in the community related to community events and recreational programming. The new program also aims to streamline the sponsorship/donation gathering process for all staff involved with various aspects of organizing events and activities in the City, as well as offer enhanced marketing opportunities for local businesses. This new initiative was well-received by the business community and several sponsorships were received this year. The sponsorship opportunities were published in the spring Parks and Recreation Guide, City newsletters, the City website and some letters were sent to area businesses explaining the program.
