Title
Authorizing the termination of two leases between the City and the United States Postal Service for the Capital Station Post Office space and adjacent parking at the Madison Municipal Building.
Body
The City of Madison executed two leases with United States Postal Service (USPS) (the “Lessee”) on January 1, 1989 and November 1, 1995 for its parking and retail space, respectively (individually the “Parking Lease” and “Retail Lease”-collectively the “Leases”) at the Madison Municipal Building (the “MMB”) located at 215 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. The Parking Lease is on a month-to-month term; the Retail Lease expired on October 31, 2005 and USPS’s occupancy has been on a month to month basis thereafter. The Leases can be terminated by the City by giving the Lessee 30 days written notice.

The loading dock area and parking stalls adjacent to the annex need to be surrendered on October 30, 2015 in order to meet the current demolition schedule. The retail space (excluding the dock) described in the Retail Lease will be allowed to operate within MMB until an expiration date of January 31, 2016, in order to accommodate USPS with the upcoming holiday season/build-out of its new space.
