SUMMARY:

                                          

On March 8, 2018, City Council approved an Interlocal Agreement with Escambia County for the purpose of using Raymond Riddle Park for the City’s athletic programs that were residing at Bill Gregory Park during renovations to its stormwater infrastructure.  The Interlocal Agreement allowed the City to continue to administer the athletic programs that had been scheduled to take place at Bill Gregory Park.  With the construction work completed, programs have resumed at Bill Gregory Park, however the construction project resulted in the elimination of one ballfield at Bill Gregory Park.  Therefore, based on the demand for programs in that area, the County has agreed to allow the City to continue to use the Raymond Riddle Park. The agreement for the use of Raymond Riddle Park is for a one-year term.

 

The City agrees to continue to pay all monthly utilities and other costs associated with activities during this time frame as noted in the agreement.  At its March 7, 2019 meeting the Board of County Commissioners approved the Interlocal Agreement for the use of the Raymond Riddle Park.   Although the City does not seek to make a profit on its athletic activities, any fees that are collected to run the programs will remain exclusive property of the City.
