Negotiations are continuing on a recently proposed lease agreement between the Town of Laguna Vista and the Recreation Association which oversees operations of the local marina.
“We are making progress,” said David Lohse, president of the Laguna Madre Recreation Association Inc. “We’ve got a lease. We are working on another,” he said of the 16-page proposed lease agreement presented by the Town in May.
The Town Council recently issued the proposed lease agreement for the 27-acre tract of bay-front land which would replace the simpler, one-page agreement first executed in 1971 that extends until 2021.
The newly proposed 25-year lease would require the association pay the Town $100 rent per month, construct a fence around the marina, pay for installation and fees for utilities including gas, electric, water, sewer and telephone.
