Following Board discussion, Mr. Bruett made a motion to approve the Consent Agenda, and authorization for the Board Chairman to execute any required documents. Mr.

a. Amendment of Lease – Sheltair Aviation
This item provides for Board approval to amend the Lease Agreement between the District and Sheltair Panama City, LLC.
In August 2012, the Board approved Sheltair’s request for an amendment to the original lease to expand the premises to 20.12 acres with the rent commencing two years following the original lease commencement, specifically June 29, 2012.
Staff has received a new request from Sheltair to modify the previous Lease Amendment to include additional acreage they are presently utilizing, which is approximately 23,408 square feet; to remove undevelopable parcels, which are approximately 268,686 square feet; and to have options on two additional parcels, which are approximately 28,122 square feet and 374,290 square feet, respectively.
Sheltair is requesting the option on the two additional parcels to allow them the ability to retain those parcels for a period of five years. Should Sheltair propose development of any portion of the parcels, the rent for the developed portion would be at the rates established in the lease and the remaining portion billed at the option rate through 2017.
Approval of the Lease Amendment would have a positive effect on the remaining FY2012 budget.
Following Board discussion, Mr. Scott made a motion to approve the Lease Amendment between Sheltair and the District to reflect the additional acreage, the deletion of the undevelopable parcels, and the approval of the option on the two additional parcels for a five year term beginning June 29, 2012 under the proposed fee structure, with authorization for the Board Chairman or his designee to execute any required documents. Mr. Koehnemann seconded the motion. The vote was taken and the motion passed unanimously.
