RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO A SHORT TERM LEASE WITH THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB TO EXTEND ITS OCCUPANCY OF THE LOWER LEVEL OF THE OLD INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2011.
WHEREAS, The City of Homer recently solicited proposals to lease all or a portion of the old Homer Intermediate School and a proposal was submitted by the Boys and Girls Club; and
WHEREAS, The Lease Committee found that the proposal was incomplete and requested that the City Manager work with the Boys and Girls Club to address some of the issues and obtain missing information, an effort that is currently in progress; and
WHEREAS, The Boys and Girls Club has been looking for alternative locations knowing that its current agreement with the City would lapse on May 31, 2011 and that the City was looking for new tenants or uses for the facility; and
WHEREAS, No other suitable locations have been found to date and the local chapter of the Boys and Girls Club will likely close this fall if a venue cannot be found; and
WHEREAS, The City currently has no prospective tenants for the facility until at least September 2012 and parts of the City administration are temporarily housed there, thus requiring that the building be maintained and heated to more than “warm” status; and
WHEREAS, There are a number of scenarios and ideas circulating about the future use of the building that incorporate a continued presence by the Boys and Girls Club.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That the Homer City Council hereby authorizes the City Manager to enter into a short term lease with the Boys and Girls Club and extend its occupancy of the lower level of the old intermediate school until December 31, 2011.
PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Homer City Council this 25th day of July, 2011.
