AVALON, CATALINA ISLAND - The City Manager's Office on Anheuser-Busch Bud Light “Up For Whatever” 2015 Event. The City has received the special event application from Mosaic (contractor for Anheuser- Busch) for the May 29th-31st Bud Light UpForWhatever event to be held here in the City of Avalon.  The Department Heads, the Chamber, the City Attorney and I participated in a discussion with Bobby Wells (Production Director at Mosaic) on Friday morning, who is heading up preparation and planning for the event on Anheuser-Busch’s behalf.  Bobby will be tracking down answers to questions posed by the Avalon team, and will be next meeting with all of us when he is on-island on Tuesday. Once the special event application has been completely reviewed – and approved – which will occur very shortly, we will be releasing details to the public about the scope, size and footprint of the event (we will also likely convene some type of general information meeting(s) in the near future as well so that the general public may learn more about the event). On a parallel path – the City Attorney’s Office is working on the draft agreement with Anheuser-Busch for the event.  Lastly, as a follow-up to an email that I sent out to you all, the City has hired Danica Cresswell-Hoffmann as a City temporary worker to serve in an Events Liaison capacity, facility questions/answers between Anheuser-Busch and island stakeholders, following up on action items, and just in generally helping to ensure that the event planning is moving forward in a satisfactory manner.
