L-3 airport lease negotiations starting

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council is scheduled Tuesday to hire a legal firm to represent the city in negotiations with L-3 Communications Integrated Systems concerning the defense contractor’s lease of property at Majors Field Municipal Airport.

The vote is set during Tuesday’s work session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. A work session is also scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The Council is scheduled to vote to authorize Mayor Steve Reid to enter into a Professional Services Agreement with Taylor Olson Adkins Sralla Elam for legal matters with respect to the airport lease.

The law firm has proposed handling the negotiations at a rate of $200 per hour for attorney work, $100 per hour in paralegal work and $20 per hour for work performed by administrative assistants.

Under the proposal, the attorneys would coordinate their efforts through either Reid or City Attorney Daniel Ray.

Majors Field, the City of Greenville Municipal Airport, covers approximately 1,500 acres. L-3 leases much of the airport property from the City of Greenville, with the original lease agreement reached in 1977.

The lease agreement is up for consideration again in 2017.
