April 13, 2013

To the editor: There’s not much time left. Please help us keep the Riverstop. I stopped by the Yacht Club yesterday to enjoy some time at the pool and lunch at KC’s Riverstop....

So, you'd rather have your cash stolen that you will never see again than your credit card which you are not responsible for the fraud charges !

Why are they still pushing for more signatures on that petition? 1800 plus..they should be concerning themselves with getting that Bid proposal ready and not be informing their employees to look for jobs elsewhere.Oh btw grumpy, when was the last time you ate at KC Riverstop?

I agree with Ray, a credit card is much safer than cash.

Grumpy,

A credit card is far safer than cash!

JMiehle, it is more dangerous to carry a credit card to the beach than carry cash. If you k now you are going to purchase anything, you should carry enough cash. I'd rather someone steal the cash that a credit or debit card.

Yep we agree Switch. Grumpy, I was there with my grandkids and son in-law. $45.00, not chump change. I don't think people need to be coming to the beach carrying cash.

JMiehle I do not agree with you very often but I do agree now on what you have posted. Why on this mater? Because The state,the county, and probably the city has just ended a season that can be called financially a success. If the rent has not been brought up to date it should have by April 1. If the rent has not been totally satisfied or mostly satisfied the city council needs to if they have not already begin some collection. Five months I believe would equate to $25,000. High rent, low rent, what we seem to have is no rent! I was and still am wanting a fair rent to be paid by K C River Stop. However I am in no way in favor of renting to a business that is red flagging as a credit risk. In other words I hate all deadbeats. Who is in charge of making the call to the owner? It wouldn't be the Parks & Recreation Director/ former Acting (like) a City Manager?

Who knows if they submitted a bid for the place? Nobody will know that until the bids are opened. As for accepting credit cards for the food. The food and drinks are inexpensive enough that you should pay with cash. John, I agree that the yacht club and SunSplash should be run by someone other than the city. I would also like to see those using the pool and other amenities at the yacht club pay for parking. That includes the beach also. Maintenance on those is very high and need to be paid for by those that use it. Boaters who trailer their boats pay for parking so why shouldn't others using the amenities?

The city has a responsibility to manage city property effectively. KC's has a contract with a renewal option that allows the city to go out for a bid. If KC's is confident they pay enough or too much, they could posssibly pay less. If they don't submit a bid, they will lose the lease. You also can't overlook 5 months or more of not paying their rent.

If they do get a renewal, I want to see them allow credit cards for everything not just boat gas.

I like them also but I want to know the value of the lease. I also think the ENTIRE Yacht Club should go out for bid so the city isn't managing it and it becomes an income source. Same for Sun Splash.

Why are they NOT going to submit a fair competitive bid on the services? Why are they only looking for "gimmees"?

If KC's is so interested in keeping their location then they need to submit a competitive bid. If they can't do that, then they need to take their business elsewhere.

How are they coming on preparing their competative proposal?

let them compete for the bushiness, if they win the bid...good for them. We will finally know, if the price they have been paying is a fair one. With them being a strictly cash business, well enough said.....
