Citizen Input There was none Other Bruce Baumgartner, County Manager, shared some information on airport automobile rentals. He stated that at the last meeting Commissioner Menconi asked about rental car prices at the airport. There was a question raised about someone paying $3500 for a rental car at the airport for one week. The SUV was a Hummer 3, which was rented and reserved online. When the reservation was placed online, there were other full-size and mid-size vehicles available. If this individual was concerned about the price there were other cars available at lower rates. They found that the prices varied by the size vehicle and company. The most expensive SUV was a DollarlThrifty and the price was $4000 for the week. He understands the concern for price gouging and they might investigate prices further. Currently there is a wide variation of price and choice and much less expensive cars available on a weekly basis. He sees no red flags. Chairman Runyon stated that looking at the figures an SUV costs much more than a full-size rental. It is very apparent that there is a huge price difference depending on the smaller mid-size and full-size. It pays for people to do comparison shopping. Commissioner Menconi asked if an SUV is averaging over $3000, a week and sugested finding out what other comparable resort communities are charging. He requested that Mr. Baumgartner advise some kind of action. Mr. Baumgartner stated that he has not seen any red flags. He would be concerned if there was indication that everyone was charging exactly the same and on the high side.' He believes the free market is providing some competition and that's what we want. Commissioner Fisher spoke about a recent trip to Mexico. She stated that SUV's were very difficult to obtain. The least expensive car they could find was $1600 before taxes and insurance. They chose alternative transportation. 2 01/14/08 Work Session - Housing Guidelines Alex Potente, Acting Housing Director Recorded Planning Files PDA-00068 Beaver Creek PUD Bob Narracci, Planning Department NOTE: ACTION: Tabled from 10/2/07.
