Staff recommends approval of the first amendment with Z-Coffee Corporation to extend the existing agreement thru December 31, 2013.
The City originally executed an agreement with Z-Coffee Corporation for a term beginning January 1, 2007 and ending on December 31, 2011, pursuant to RFP-06-07. Z-Coffee Corporation rents a space located in the front corner of the Leesburg Public Library. The company pays 5% of pre-tax gross income to the City of Leesburg on a monthly basis as rent for this space.
Z-Coffee Corporation became delinquent on their payments due to the economic decline, but they have entered into a payment plan with the City Finance Department to make bi-monthly payments. This allows the café to pay their current rent and also to catch up on the past due amount.
The original agreement states that this Agreement may be renewed for three (3) additional two (2) year terms if both parties agree. This first amendment will extend the contract period until December 31, 2013. The City wishes to exercise the option to renew for another two years with this first amendment.
Extension of this contract will allow for uninterrupted concession services at the library. Retaining the existing company would minimize confusion and cost by transferring to a new company. The City has received excellent service and dependability from Z-Coffee Corporation and since this vendor is making a concerted effort to pay the delinquent amounts and bring their account up to current status, the City would like to continue its relationship with this vendor.
This item was tabled at the December 12, 2011, Commission meeting to the January 9, 2012.
1. Authorize execution of the first amendment with Z-Coffee Corporation; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no fiscal impact from this agreement because the vendor pays the City for space rented.
