Long-term agreement between Town of Millet and library

Millet town, library lease deal simplified and extended

The Town of Millet and the Millet Public Library look ready to sign a new, simplified and extended lease agreement after the issue was discussed at the June 14 regular council meeting.

Town CAO Teri Pelletier presented council with the new lease agreement, noting that the public library’s current lease was set to expire at the end of June, 2017. The library is located at 5031-49 Ave.

Pelletier said she’d met with the library manager to discuss the lease, which resulted in a more simplified agreement. The CAO said she was also looking to get the agreement in place as a 10-year extension.

Both mayor Tony Wadsworth and councilor Doug Peel agreed the 10-year extension was a good idea.

Councilors discussed the fact that a complicated lease wasn’t really necessary for a service that is actually a town department.

It was noted at the meeting the library board already examined and approved the proposed lease at their June 13 meeting.

The lease notes the library doesn’t pay rent, but is responsible for all utility costs, including the phone bill. As well, the town’s responsible for day-to-day maintenance while the library is responsible for caretaking services.

Councilors unanimously approved the Millet Library lease.
