All fees collected under this chapter shall be held in a special fund designated a public art fund, maintained, managed and reviewed by the City Manager, or his/her designee. The City Manager shall, as part of the City’s annual budget process, estimate the administrative costs of the public art program for the given fiscal year. The annual expenses shall not exceed 20 percent of the estimated revenue from in-lieu fee payments. The annual budget and all revisions for the public art fund shall be subject to the review and approval of the City Council.
The City Council may, as funds are available, seek proposals for a public art project utilizing the available funds in the public art fund for such effort. The City Council will invest in the Public Arts Committee the responsibility to develop a plan for the project. Such plan shall include:
A. Artistic objectives.
B. Proposed site or sites.
C. Desired type of art that is proposed.
D. A preliminary budget and schedule for the project.
E. Project management recommendations.
F. Other objectives.
Upon receipt and approval of this plan, the City Council will authorize City staff, in conjunction with the Public Arts Committee, to develop a formal request for proposals for the project. Staff and the Public Arts Committee will review the proposals received and provide recommendations to the City Council for acceptance.
The City Council, if sufficiently satisfied with the proposals, will make the final decision to enter into a contract for the project. The actual development of the project will be overseen by the City, and/or its contractors, assigns or designees. (Ord. 1111, 2018)
