Agenda Item Brief: FY2012-13 city memberships and contributions

Background: Historically, the City of Sparks has had annual memberships in several local, state, and national organizations and provides an annual contribution to several local agencies. Because of the economic downturn, the number of memberships and contributions has been limited to the Alliance for Innovation, EDAWN, ICMA's Center for Performance Measurement, and Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful since FY2010-11. The city had a membership with the Sparks Chamber of Commerce for a number of years but has contributed to a corporate sponsorship with Tourism & Marketing funds since FY2009-10. The city has been approached to re-join the Nevada League of Cities. We have not been a member of the League since FY2009-10. In addition, we have not been a member of the National League of Cities since FY2009-10. The cost for these various memberships and contributions is outlined in the attached sheet entitled "Current City Memberships". The City Manager is requesting City Council direction regarding these memberships and contributions as a component of creating the FY2012-13 city budget.

Analysis: None

Alternatives: None

Recommended Motion: I move to approve funding for the following city memberships and contributions.
