The County Commission has received a letter from Trenton City Administrator, Kerry Sampson, saying, due to high maintenance and energy costs, unfortunately, the City is unable to continue to lease space for the ambulance in the fire station under the current terms.

The letter says it serves as a termination of the lease space at the fire station.

The letter from Sampson also says the City would be willing to enter into a new lease beginning July 1st in the same terms and conditions except, to have rent at $1450 a month, pro rated utility cost per month based on square footage occupied, same as at the Law Enforcement Center, and a term of 3 years.

County Commissioner Hull said the current lease that began July 1st of 2009 was for 5 years, with 3 automatic renewals for a total of 15 years. Hull said a 60 day notice is required if any changes are to be made.

The County currently pays $1150 a month rent, with no extra cost for utilities.

Presiding Commissioner Hull is to meet with City Administrator Sampson this morning to see if the figures are negotiable, then discuss the matter with the full Commission.

Hull indicated he was approached by Sampson a few months ago who told Hull there might have to be some adjustments in the lease. Since then, there have been numerous City meetings attempting to come up with a balanced City budget for the fiscal year that begins today.
