On Aug. 1, 2017 at the District of Houston council meeting, it was brought to council’s attention an amendment to extend the lease agreement from five to 10 years.

This building will store equipment as well as facilitate training to HSAR members. The original lease was agreed to be set for five years in the amount of $1 per year.

Andy Muma, president of HSAR wrote the the District of Houston in an email stating that in order to secure funding under the Capital Gaming Grant program, a 10 year lease would be required.

District staff recommended that the extension be granted from Aug. 1, 2017 to July 31, 2027 in the amount of $1

Houston council agreed to resolve the recommendation and approved the extension of the lease.
