AGENDA ITEM: Resolution Approving a Lease Agreement with Mario Luis and Maria Teresa Maldonado for the Lease of City-Owned Property Located at 641 Main Street

MEETING DATE: July 21, 2016

PREPARED BY: Odi Ortiz, Interim City Manager

RECOMMENDATION:

Consider approving Resolution No. approving a lease agreement with Mario Luis and Maria Teresa Maldonado for the lease of City-owned property located at 641 Main Street.

BACKGROUND:

The City owns a building located at 641 Main Street ("Property") which it has leased to the Livingston Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture ("Chamber") for the past four years. The Chamber informed the City that they no longer wish to lease the property and seek to terminate the lease, effective August 1, 2016.

DISCUSSION:

Mario Luis and Maria Teresa Maldonado ("Maldonado’s") currently operate a barbershop within the Property as a participant in a Chamber program aimed to assist small businesses. Given the Chamber’s interest in terminating the lease, the Maldonado’s approached the City about entering into a lease agreement for the Property. As participants in the Chamber program, the Maldonado’s have contributed funds to various repairs to the Property such as upgrades and repairs to the roof, flooring, interior walls, electrical wiring, and air conditioning/heating unit.

The Maldonado’s have agreed to the following lease terms:

• Five-year term

• $500 monthly rent, plus utilities

• All maintenance, repairs and improvements shall be completed at Tenant’s expense.

Staff recommend approval of the lease agreement and note that leasing this Property has proven to be cost-efficient because the costs of maintaining the Property are paid for by the tenant.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Continuing to lease this Property eliminates maintenance and repairs costs to the City, which is a cost savings. The rent generated by this Lease will be $6,000 per year.
