Item No: 4.C.3.
Meeting Date: July 23, 2012
From: Doug Drymon, Deputy City Manager/Interim Airport Manager
Subject: Resolution authorizing execution of a Lease Agreement with Sunair Aviation, Inc., for Suites 101 & 102, 8701 Airport Boulevard, Leesburg International Airport.
Staff recommends approval of the submitted Lease Agreement with Sunair Aviation, Inc., for Suites 101 & 102, 8701 Airport Boulevard.
Sunair Aviation, Inc., currently leases Suite 102 at Leesburg International Airport, which is the larger of two hangars located in the group of buildings that formerly housed Triangle Aviation at the west end of Airport Boulevard. Mr. Brian Sapp, owner and operator of Sunair Aviation, has approached the City with a request to enter into a lease for the adjoining Suite 101, which formerly was used as the offices of Triangle Aviation. The attached diagram shows the relationship of the offices in Suite 101 to Mr. Sapp’s hangar in Suite 102.
The submitted Lease Agreement effectively cancels Mr. Sapp’s previous lease for Suite 102, and substitutes an entirely new lease for both Suites 101 & 102 combined. The term of the new lease will be for five years, with one 5-year extension. Similar to its other leasing arrangements with Sunair Aviation, the City will be responsible for outside maintenance of the building (including the roof) and general maintenance of the HVAC. Sunair will be responsible for maintaining the interior of the building as well as maintenance of the adjoining grounds and landscaping. Sunair will be painting the exterior of the building in the near future.
At the July 11, 2012 regularly-scheduled Airport Advisory Board meeting, the Board members present voted _3_ to _0_ (2 members absent) to recommend to the City Commission that the submitted Lease Agreement be approved.
1. Approve the submitted Lease Agreement with Sunair Aviation, Inc.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The monthly rent for Suites 101 & 102 combined will be $1,450.00. This amount is subject to adjustment according to the change in CPI-U every other year, beginning July 2014 and continuing thereafter.
