Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

Airport users with portable hangars must enter into a lease with the County for the use of Airport property, in accordance with County Ordinance Code § 3.08.021.  Each new ground lease includes language required by the County and the Federal Aviation Administration.

 

The proposed leases represent new ground leases, upon which a privately-owned portable aircraft storage hangar will be utilized, and recognizes a change in ownership for these hangars occupying:

                     Placerville Airport Space H-19.5, owners Stephens Family Trust, Trustees Hal and Nancy Stephens (Stephens Lease);

                     Placerville Airport Space TP-21, owners William and Elaine Boggess (Boggess Lease);

                     Placerville Airport Space SP-16, owners James and Fern Sidebotham (Sidebotham Lease); and,

                     Placerville Airport Space SP-10, owner Marc Regelbrugge (Regelbrugge Lease).

 

Each lease includes a term effective upon Board execution and expiring ten (10) years thereafter. Upon expiration of the initial term, Lessees shall have the right to extend the term for an additional two (2) ten (10) year lease options under such terms and conditions as may be agreed upon at such time. After expiration, the County may issue a written notice authorizing each Lessee to holdover as a holdover tenant with a month-to-month term under the same lease terms and conditions, including Section 3 regarding payment of a prorated share of the annual rent due. The County may terminate at any time the holdover period upon thirty (30) days written notice.

 

In accordance with County Ordinance Code § 18.04.100, Fees and Charges, fees for airport ground leases are set by a Board Adopted Resolution; therefore, lease fees are not negotiated.  Current Airport fees are in accordance with Resolution 183-2019 adopted by the Board on October 22, 2019, which establishes per Exhibit A (Attachment G) the rental fees now referenced in each lease, as follows: 

                     Stephens Lease with an annual fee of $2,952 for a Hangar utilizing 3,000 square feet of designated airport property;

                     Boggess Lease with an annual fee of $1,068 for a Hangar utilizing 1,086 square feet of designated airport property;

                     Sidebotham Lease with an annual fee of $792 for a Hangar utilizing 812 square feet of designated airport property; and,

                     Regelbrugge Lease with an annual fee of $792 for a Hangar utilizing 812 square feet of designated airport property.

 

Each lease provides for an annual adjustment of the rental fee amount should the Board adopt different rates in the future.

 

A 4/5 vote is required in accordance with County Ordinance Code § 3.08.021(B) as authorized by Government Code Section 25536 or any successor statute.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose to:

1) Approve or disapprove on an individual lease basis;

2) Approve the Stephens Lease, Boggess Lease, Sidebotham Lease, and Regelbrugge Lease with a different term of the Board’s choosing; or,

3) Disapprove the proposed Stephens Lease, Boggess Lease, Sidebotham Lease, and Regelbrugge Lease, that will require removal of the portable hangars from County airport property, resulting in the loss of lease revenue until such time as new hangar placement requests are received and airport ground leases are secured.
