Discussion was held concerning leasing space at the John Lampe building in downtown Smithfield. Discussion included questions whether this location would provide more foot traffic, current lease expenses versus new lease, and the length of the new lease. The group toured the proposed office space. There were no negative comments as this office space provides greater visibility for JCVB, more space and a meeting room.
T Stewart motioned to entertain a lease with John Lampe pending review of the lease by David Mills. M Patel seconded. Motion passed unanimously.
No other business was discussed.
Meeting adjourned at 12:30 pm.
