Title: Submitted by Councilmember Posey - Let's Go Fishing 90-Day Lease Extension




SUBMITTED TO:                     Honorable Mayor and City Council Members                     


SUBMITTED BY:                     Mike Posey, City Council Member



Submitted by Councilmember Posey - Let’s Go Fishing 90-Day Lease Extension




On November 4, 2019, the City Council authorized the execution of an updated lease agreement for Let’s Go Fishing and Surf City Snack Bar, LLC (Let’s Go Fishing), which operates out of a City owned facility located on the Huntington Beach Pier.  The updated lease agreement provided for a base 6-month lease, which would be followed by a month-to-month lease term for an additional period of time not to exceed 6-months.  Pursuant to these terms, the Let’s Go Fishing Lease was set to transition to a month-to-month contract in June 2020.

Based on the current COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the fact that the City’s Pier has been shut down for the past 2 months, I am recommending that the City Council direct staff to process a 90-lease extension for Let’s Go Fishing, pursuant to the following terms:

§                     Extend the Let’s Go Fishing agreement for an additional 3-month period, so that the base lease term would run through the end of August 2020.


§                     Following the expiration of the base lease term, allow for the maintenance of the existing month-to-month provisions of the agreement for an additional period of time not to exceed an additional 6-month period.


Recommended Action:


Based on my assessment of the situation, I am requesting that the City Council vote to direct staff to execute a new contract with Let’s Go Fishing to provide for an additional 3-month term to their base lease agreement, pursuant to the terms outlined above.
