Agenda Report # 71
WHEREAS, Columbus Umpires Association is the only ASA sanctioned umpires association within a close enough proximity to Columbus to officiate games five nights per week, and;
WHEREAS, the Parks and Recreation Department needs approval to utilize Columbus Umpires Association for all athletic events held within the department as a sole source vendor, and;
WHEREAS, the current cost is $23.00 per umpire per game for adult league softball and $24.00 per game for senior league softball. This amount changes with trends in the industry and approval is needed to increase that payment as invoiced by Columbus Umpires Association. These costs are factored into the user fees to have a team in the league.
NOW, THEREFORE, THE COUNCIL OF COLUMBUS, GEORGIA, HEREBY RESOLVES AS FOLLOWS:
That the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department has approval to use Columbus Umpires Association as the vendor for officiating games within the department.
