RINCON — The Rincon City Council’s initial agenda of 2022 was extremely short but might result in plenty of tasty morsels to chew on soon.
During a regularly scheduled meeting Monday, City Manager John Klimm updated the council on a business plan for food and beverage services at Lost Plantation Golf Club.
“I put this on the agenda for tonight’s meeting to notify the general public that, in fact, in our RFP (request for proposal) process, we were in receipt of a proposal that is now under consideration,” Klimm said.
The city manager added, “There are numerous items in the proposal that we need to discuss in executive session. It was not the intent to see any an action tonight, but just to notify the general public that we have a received a bid and we are in the process of reviewing that bid.”
The proposal was submitted by 19th Hole Bistro LLC, a business that is 100 percent owned and financed by Ana P. Lazala. According to the summary, running a restaurant is her dream and she isn’t interested in acquiring partners.
According to The 19th Hole Bistro Plan, the restaurant would provide fast, quality and affordable meals to the Lost Plantation golf community, residents and corporate clients. Some of the products it intends to serve include breakfast (eggs, toast, bacon, ham, yogurt and fruits), beverages (soft drinks, coffee, tea, orange juice, beer and wine) and regular meals (salads, sandwiches, burgers, wings, nuggets and chips).
The proposal calls for normal operating hours to be from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. There would be extended operating hours for special events from 7 p.m.-2 a.m. In addition, the proposal includes the operation of a beverage cart on weekends and for special events.
Before going into executive session, the council approved a request to pay Sikes Brothers Inc $16,923.16 for improvements to 4th Street and Weisenbaker Road.
