A Boardwalk Market tenant will be moving out if Dunkirk's Common Council gives its approval today.
Resolution 76-2012 would authorize and direct Mayor Anthony J. Dolce to execute the required documents to terminate the lease between the Kangaroo Cafe and the city. The lease holders are Genene (Robertson) Adamczak and Timothy Adamczak.
According to the resolution, both the Kangaroo Cafe and the city "desire to modify the terms of the lease agreement, whereby the lease agreement with the city will be terminated." The lease would have run through March 31, 2013.
Council will vote on the expenditure of $13,000 to provide financial management and utility billing software upgrades. KVS Information Systems, Inc. of Amherst has provided the same services for the city in the past and according to 75-2012, will provide the financing through four years at 4 percent interest.
Council will change the way it meets under 74-2012, eliminating its workshop session and beginning regular meetings at 5:30 p.m.
"The Common Council believes that it would be in the best interests of the residents and taxpayers of the city, and would provide a greater opportunity for openness and transparency, if such workshops were eliminated so that more on-the-record discussions regarding the business of the Common Council was conducted during the formal Council meeting," the resolution states.
There are four pre-filed communications on the agenda.
