LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Board of Supervisors will consider approving a memorandum of understanding with Marymount College to establish a campus at the Lucerne Hotel when it meets this week.
The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 5, in the board chambers on the first floor of the Lake County Courthouse, 255 N. Forbes St., Lakeport. TV8 will broadcast the meeting live.
The discussion of the memorandum of understanding is an untimed item.
The county issued a request for proposals seeking educational institutions wanting to use the Lucerne Hotel as a campus in June 2011, according to County Administrative Officer Kelly Cox's report to the board.
The board approved the selection of Southern California-based Marymount's proposal last October, and directed staff to work on the agreement, Cox said.
Cox's report explains that a memorandum of understanding has been developed following several months of negotiations between the college and county. He said a lease agreement for the property is still to be finalized.
“In advance of executing an actual lease agreement, the decision was made to prepare a MOU in order to document both parties' intentions and responsibilities,” Cox wrote. “The terms of the MOU have been negotiated by staff and the MOU is being submitted concurrently to the Board of Supervisors and the Marymount College Board of Trustees, for formal approval.”
Cox is asking for the board's approval of the approved MOU, and also is seeking direction to finalize a lease agreement for the facility “and return to the Board with the lease as soon as possible.”
