RESOLUTION 2022-10. A RESOLUTION OF THE TOWN COMMISSION OF THE TOWN OF LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA, FLORIDA, APPROVING AN AGREEMENT WITH ZAMBELLI FIREWORKS MANUFACTURING CO. FOR FIREWORKS DISPLAYS; FINDING THAT THE AGREEMENT IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE TOWN AND EXEMPT FROM COMPETITIVE SOLICITATION PURSUANT TO SECTION IV.L OF THE TOWN PURCHASING MANUAL; AUTHORIZING THE TOWN MANAGER TO EXECUTE THE AGREEMENT; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.
On October 26, 2021, the Town Commission approved, and authorized the Town Manager to execute, a piggyback agreement with Conceptual Communications for Marketing services (the “Agreement”). The contract that the Town piggybacked was between Conceptual Communications and Wilton Manors (the “Wilton Manors Agreement”). The Town’s Agreement with Conceptual Communications includes has a broader scope of services, which allows for the expansion of marketing and public relations opportunities with the limitation not to exceed $50,000. As you know, Steve D’Oliveira, the Town’s Public Information Office, retired from the Town in February. His position included being the contact for media inquiries, monitoring the Town’s website, preparing the Town’s Town Topics newsletter, and audio visual and IT coordination services. While we are sad to see Steve leave the Town, his absence has given us an opportunity to rethink the special events/ marketing/visitor center and communication tasks for the Town. Staff is proposing that we shift the following duties previously assigned to Steve to Conceptual Communications. Because the cost will exceed the $50,000 limitation, a new contract is necessary (Exhibit 1). Staff is suggesting the following tasks. Items listed in bold are new tasks that will enhance our communication with the public and ensure that they are well informed with the Commission’s actions. • Create a Plan for Crisis Communications • Manage Media Requests • Distribute a weekly Town Update eblast to residents • Provide a Commission meeting recap eblast • Layout, Content and Copy Editing for Quarterly Town Topics Newsletter • Manage website content • ADA Compliance/Accessibility Oversight • Create and Manage Social Media Content (Facebook, Twitter, NextDoor) The proposal submitted to the Town for the Additional Services will be covered in part by our existing contract. The remaining amount $40,470 is addressed in the new contract. Because part of the expense is setting up the services, staff is suggesting a three-year contract with options to extend two additional years. To keep the contract competitive, the consultant is requesting an automatic escalator each new year of the contract. The cost for the year would be approximately $60,000. This is a significant savings in what funds were allocated for the PIO position ($120,000 including benefit costs). The remaining savings will be redistributed to fund the AV component of the PIO position and reevaluate the staffing levels for special events. These items will be brough to the Commission at a future meeting.
