The County Commission will not renew the Semmes Branch Library lease as is?
That is Good News!
Notice the Commissioner’s words: “as-is.”
They are doing the right thing.
The CVS lease option should not be picked up “as-is.”
The lease option raises the price to around 130% of what it should be, according to real estate experts we have consulted. It must be rejected before negotiations can begin on a new and better lease.
Please do not pressure our Commissioners into making a bad deal.
They are not the bad guys.
And neither are we.
We have already let the Commissioners know that after they have made their best deal on a new lease, we will do what we are able to do to help out.
The present lease agreement was negotiated 10 years ago – before the market crash.
This is a new day.
There will be 6 months to negotiate a new and better lease.
Give the Mobile County Commission breathing room!
The pressure needs to be on CVS to lower the price,
NOT on our Commissioners to raise the price.
They will come through for us.
