Title
From the Director, Department of Transportation and Public Works, and the Airport Director requesting authorization to enter into a lease agreement with Air Cargo Carriers (ACC) Holding, Inc., for the lease of approximately 3,630 square feet of warehouse space (Building 301) at the former 440th Air Reserve Station (ARS) effective October 1, 2011.
 
Body
POLICY
County Board approval is required for Milwaukee County to enter into a building lease agreement with ACC Holding, Inc. for a training building at the former 440th Air Reserve Station (ARS) at General Mitchell International Airport (GMIA).
BACKGROUND
ACC Holding, Inc. (Air Cargo Carriers) is a cargo airline headquartered in Milwaukee with its main base of operations at General Mitchell International Airport. It was established in 1986 and is the largest civilian operator of Shorts aircraft in the world.
Currently Air Cargo Carriers occupies two hangers in the northwest section of GMIA as well as office and warehouse space at the former 440th ARS. Their intent was to consolidate much of their office and warehouse operations in one location, at the former 440th ARS.
In addition to Air Cargo Carriers cargo operations, they have contracts with the Department of Defense to assist with their military efforts. Because of these activities Air Cargo Carriers pilots are required to be certified in the use of firearms. Building # 301, the former indoor "Small Arms Firing Range", lends itself perfectly to allow Air Cargo Carriers the ability to train their pilots on site in a secure area.
RECOMMENDATION
Airport staff recommends that Milwaukee County enter into a lease agreement with ACC Holding, Inc., effective October 1, 2011, for the lease of approximately 3,630 square feet of indoor space, the former "Small Arms Firing Range" at the former 440th Air Force Reserve Base, under standard terms and conditions for County-owned land and building space, inclusive of the following:
1.      The term of the triple net lease agreement shall be for three (3) years, effective October 1, 2011, and ending September 30, 2014, with one (1) two-year mutual renewal option.
2.      Any furniture, office equipment, or any other material identified will be inventoried in the office building and made available to ACC Holding, Inc. at no charge, to be returned at the conclusion of the lease.
3.      Rental for the approximately 3,630 square feet of space in the building will be established at: $2.50/sq. ft. for an approximate total of $9,075 for the first year of the lease. An option to extend the lease term for an additional two years shall be at the fair market value lease rate to be determined.
4.      The lease agreement shall contain the current standard insurance and environmental language for similar agreements. Under these terms of this triple net lease agreement ACC Holding, Inc. will be responsible for the cost of insurance, utilities and common area maintenance charges.
FISCAL NOTE
Rental revenues will be approximately $9,075 for the first year of the agreement.
