      Dr. Iser indicated that any issues should be resolved over the course of due diligence and recommended purchase of 278 S. Decatur. Andy Glass advised the current lease at 330 S. Valley View expires on July 31, 2015 and the district will then be subject to a 20% premium for continued occupancy. Mr. Glass believes the district should be able to transition to the Decatur property no more than six months after the expiration of the lease.

      Dr. Iser reported the City of Las Vegas and Clark County have offered engineering and design/build staff to assist with this endeavor.

      In regard to the other buildings currently occupied by SNHD, Dr. Iser stated there is less than two years left on the Henderson lease and he may recommend not renewing the lease on that particular building and move to another space. The exact location of the North Las Vegas clinic needs to be reviewed and the use of county property at 625 Shadow Lane will be totally eliminated.

      Member Giunchigliani agreed that the 278 Decatur site is financially the best move for the district and asked if, for some reason, the deal does not go through, to consider the Dillard’s property on Maryland Parkway. Member Giunchigliani will keep Dr. Iser abreast of all meetings related to this property.

      A motion was made by Member Osgood seconded by Member Jones and unanimously carried to authorize the Chief Health Officer to enter into and finalize agreements and contracts for the property at and near 278 S. Decatur up to $6.5 million. In addition, the Board authorizes entering into contracts to facilitate any design/build architect and general contractor to begin renovations.
