Staff recommends adopting the attached resolution approving the first sub-lease addendum with Sun Trust Bank for space for the Community Development Department.
On June 26, 2006 the City Commission approved this lease for Community Development’s operations. During the department’s preparations to design the new workspaces within the leased area, staff discovered a discrepancy in the landlord’s space calculations that yielded some additional space in the leased area. Staff contacted the landlord, advised them of the discrepancy, and negotiated a compromise rate for the additional space.
1. Adopt the attached resolution to approve the additional space; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
In the Fiscal Year 2007 budget, $99,892.80 (80% of the annual lease amount) will be allocated for this purpose from building permit fees and the remaining 20% ($24,973.20) will be budgeted in the Planning & Zoning operating budget, pending approval of the budget by the Commission. A budget amendment in the amount of $8,666.00 will need to be approved in the first quarter of fiscal year 2006-07 for the amended amount of this lease.
