Tyler — During this morning’s regularly scheduled meeting, the Tyler City Council ratified a short-term lease with Lake Tyler Marina Resort for the operation of the Lake Tyler Marina.
On March 3, 2014, the City of Tyler terminated a lease, with Daveryl Holdings, LLC, for the Lake Tyler Marina. Between April 4 and May 20, the marina has been operated by the City of Tyler Water Utilities staff, Thursdays through Sundays.
On May 20, staff concluded negotiations for a short-term (not to exceed 90 days) lease with Lake Tyler Marina Resort. The purpose of the short-term contract agreement is to provide for marina operations while a longer term lease can be negotiated.
“The long-term lease we are working on will address outstanding issues from the previous lease such as, but not limited to, RV space rental, boat slip repair, facility maintenance, subleases and sales documentation,” said Utility and Public Works Director Greg Morgan.
Lake Tyler Marina Resort assumed operations of the marina on May 22, 2014. The new operation schedule is 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 22 through June 1. The marina will be closed June 2 through June 4. Operations will resume on June 5, seven days per week, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours will remain in effect through the duration of the short-term contract.
It is anticipated that a long-term lease between the City of Tyler and Lake Tyler Marina Resort will be completed before the end of June.
