PURPOSE
 
The Council finds:
 
1. The City owns and controls various facilities throughout the city.
 
2. City bureau operations require space to conduct business.
 
3. The City currently leases or rents space in facilities owned by others to accommodate some bureau space requests and needs.
 
4. The City desires to maximize its investment in City owned facilities by maintaining full occupancy and providing for City bureau space needs in house.
 
5. It is in the City's best interest to occupy City owned facilities to the fullest extent possible, and to not lease outside space unless the City bureau space needs cannot be reasonably met, and the outside lease is approved by City Council ordinance.

 
POLICY
 
NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:
    1. City bureaus shall locate operations in City owned or controlled facilities when these facilities reasonably meet the business needs of the bureau.
    2. The Chief Administrative Officer or his designee is directed to not approve new leases or rental agreements or renewal of existing leases or rental agreements for facilities owned by others unless such agreement is approved the City Council.
