Background:  It has recently come to light that the City lost approximately $730,000 as a result of hosting the November basketball game, which was unfortunately cut short due to weather, that was played on board the USS Bataan and that the deficit was funded from the City's sports trust fund.  It has also come to light that these funds were expended outside the approval process mandated in the ordinance code.

The charge of the special committee is to review the circumstances surrounding this event, review the current ordinances and practices governing the use of the sports trust fund, and to make any appropriate recommendations for improved operational practices and / or changes to the ordinance code to insure that similar circumstances do not recur.
