New car rental lease at Kenai Airport approved

Oct 29, 2019

The Kenai City Council last week approved a new car rental lease for the remodeled Kenai Airport Terminal. E-A-N Holdings, which operates Enterprise, Alamo and National. The lease is non-exclusive, five-year deal worth either $44,639 per year, or 10 percent of gross receipts. It was approved unanimously.
    The council also took another step in updating its codebooks with a pretty large housekeeping resolution creating standard lease form for city land outside of the airport reserve.
    City Councilman Henry Knackstedt quizzed City Attorney Scott Bloom on why a standard leasing form was needed, and what would happen if it needs to be changed. Bloom explained major changes would need council approval, but otherwise, the forms were basically modular.
    Bloom also said a lot of the work that went into the changes came from the revisions of the leases for city land in the airport reserve that had been previously completed.
    The council approved the resolution unanimously, with Mayor Brian Gabriel absent.
