Below are lease facts regarding the City. They are indisputable.
When Bob Kerrigan's lease at the airport needed to be amended to allow subleasing, Council had to approve.
When Julian McQueen wanted to assign his lease at the airport to Pensacola Aviation, Council had to approve.
When Offshore Inland wanted to change their long term rental agreement to dump a warehouse, agree to a balloon payment for back rent and reduce their future rent payments, Council had to approve.
When Offshore Inland couldn't make their balloon payment and needed another concession, Council had to approve.
When Resicum needed their uses amended at the Airport to allow for helicopter flight training, Council had to approve.
When FWC voids its lease specifically as detailed in the document regarding commencement of construction, NO COUNCIL APPROVAL IS NEEDED.
Here is my take:
- Olson was the initiative coordinator over this Rick Scott accommodation before he was overpromoted. He had and has no idea what he is doing in his job.
- Hayward got his PR win back in 2011 when he called his emergency meeting and got conceptual approval
- The FWC got its PR win back in 2011 when they got the BP funds earmarked.
- This project has been number 97 on both the City and the FWC's top 100 to do list since 2014.
- Someone woke up in February and figured out that the FWC was waaaaaay behind glideslope on this project and put in the bull "nutrient" permit so that something was in the system.
- When the PNJ started looking, Olson exclaimed "Oh "Nutrient"!
- Then the lease was reviewed and the lease was actually VOID under the LDC definition of construction. Olson said "Holy Nutrient"
- Then the CRA requirement and angle was pointed out by the PNJ as detailed in today's article.
- When it was pointed out to him yesterday by the reporter, Olson must have called Hayward and said " We are in deep "Nutrient"!
One big sad pile of "Nutrient"!
