PREVIOUS COUNCIL ACTION:† On February 18, 2003, Ordinance was introduced by City Council, and Staff was instructed to proceed.
Texas Migrant Council has been a tenant in good standing since 1996, and they wish to continuing leasing Suite No. 8 within Bldg. #134. The premises are presently being used as† a resource room for itís child day care service program.†
Due to budgetary constraints imposed on the agency this year, CCMS has expressed a concern with the proposed rental increases on the property and proposes to continue leasing the existing space at a revised monthly rental rate of $1.16 per square foot as opposed to the Airportís proposed rate of $1.30.
At present, approximately 1,600 square feet of office space is available within the building, should CCMS vacate the premises due to their inability to meet their rental obligations and locate off-Airport, this in essence would increase the available rental area within this building to approximately 70% of the total area.
Lessee is responsible for providing Public Liability Insurance in minimum amounts of $500,000 per incident and $100,000 property damage per incident naming the City of Laredo as co-insured.†††††††
