STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution approves a rental agreement with the Arrowhead Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) for use of office space in the Wheeler fieldhouse building for a monthly rental fee of $100. The rental fee covers basic utilities (heat, electric, water, sewage and garbage) with other utilities or services to be provided by AYSA at their expense. The agreement is for a period of one year with provision for automatic renewal for one year periods if not terminated and is retroactive to January 1, 2001. AYSA has utilized the office space since that time on a trial basis and now desires to formalize the landlord-tenant relationship with the city for the ongoing use of this office space.
