Johnson County Terminates Lease On Airport Hangar

During their meeting Tuesday, the Johnson County Commissioners voted to terminate the lease agreement for the “White Hangar” at the Johnson County Airport.

The lease was renegotiated last year with Amy Gerlock, and during that time, she was given specific terms for the lease that included performing work on the hangar itself in exchange for cheaper rent and to get the work completed before the end of March, 2012.

Although she had completed other work on the building before the renegotiation last year, conditions were not met with the new contract, according to the discussions. She was to pay $100 cash to the county and put $400 per month into renovations on the hangar.

In addition, the commissioners had been informed that Gerlock was essentially sub-leasing the building to a number of individuals to store planes, cars and other items in the hangar, which is against the lease agreement with the county.

Commission Chair Smokey Wildeman explained the commission's concerns.

The commission voted to terminate the lease, but will give Gerlock until the end of June to vacate the hangar or return with a new proposal for a new lease.
