REGULAR AGENDA
1) Authorize the President, Airport Director or their designated representative to execute Freeman Holdings of Arizona, LLC Lease Amendment #8 for the purpose of adding Joe Foss Hangar Facility Suite #1 as Premises 7 to their existing lease for a period of one-year, effective October 1, 2021, with three options to extend of one year each.

Ms. Brown, Airport Director, briefed that Freeman Holdings of Arizona, LLC (dba Million Air Yuma) currently leases a number of Premises on the airport and the Amelia Earhart Hangar has been recently obligated in in its entirety on a multi-year lease. This has resulted in Million Air looking for another hangar within the DCC to accommodate their military/defense industry clients. The ability to provide hangar space to these clients helps support continued growth in fuel sales.

The proposed action is for an amendment of a short-term lease for the Joe Foss Hangar Suite #1 Facility (West side). The Joe Foss Hangar Facility is a multi-tenant facility and currently has the Jacobs Engineering Group as the Lessee of Suite #2 (East side). The proposed amendment #8 to Million Air Yuma’s existing lease would add Joe Foss Suite #1 as Premises 7 for one year beginning October 1, 2021, with three one-year options.

Mr. Craft, the YCAA President, called for a motion to authorize the President, Airport Director or their designated representative to execute Freeman Holdings of Arizona, LLC Lease Amendment #8 for the purpose of adding Joe Foss Hangar Facility Suite #1 as Premises 7 to their existing lease for a period of one-year, effective October 1, 2021, with three options to extend of one year each, contingent upon final review and approval by Airport Staff and Airport Legal Counsel. Mr. Jones so moved. Mr. Hager seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously.
