Dan Manning, County Attorney.
MANNING:† The only thing I have is a lease extension.† We currently have a lease with the Fort Ticonderoga Association relative to putting some of our radio equipment on their property.† The lease provides for an extension of the lease and 3% COLA every year that the lease is in effect.† The original lease was in the amount of and this was 2011, this is how long itís been since updated the original lease amount was $13,200, so what Iím asking for is a lease extension extending this lease for another five-year term with the next year to be $17,222.92, which is basically the 3% escalation of the COLA and this one will continue to have the 3% escalation during the five-year term.† So you will execute the lease for this year itíll be $17,222.92, every year thereafter will be a 3% increase added to that for the five-year term.† So I need a motion, a second, discussion.
RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY CHAIRMAN OR COUNTY MANAGER TO EXECUTE A LEASE EXTENSION WITH FORT TICONDEROGA ASSOCIATION FOR A FIVE-YEAR TERM AND OPTIONS, IN THE AMOUNT OF $17,222.92, WHICH INCLUDES 3% INCREASE EACH YEAR FOR COLA, SUBJECT TO REVIEW AND AMENDMENT BY THE COUNTY ATTORNEY.† Scozzafava, Giordano
