TITLE

Consider a memorandum/resolution approving a lease agreement with CSI Aviation, Inc. at the Killeen Fort Hood Regional Airport.

SUMMARY

DATE: June 1, 2021

Aviation now has adequate funding to pay the match requirement, thus keeping us from paying any further interest and allowing us to receive the full rent amount once the building is built and occupied.
