WHEREAS, the Tenant will be responsible for constructing and maintaining the lot, securing the lot, removing snow, weeds, and removing and disposing of any litter on the Premises in compliance with all applicable laws; and

WHEREAS, Landlord has agreed to lease to Tenant, and Tenant has agreed to lease from Landlord, the Premises to be used as parking for Tenant's staff and invitees at the Azuela School, upon the terms and conditions set forth herein.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the covenants, and agreements contained herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which

Right of Termination by Landlord. Landlord shall have the right to terminate the Lease with twelve (12) months written notice to Tenant. Landlord may, at its sole discretion, offer Tenant month-to-month occupancy after these twelve (12) months, which should not be considered revocation of its original notice to terminate. Such month-to-month occupancy can be terminated upon thirty (30) days' notice.
Notice of termination shall also be considered notice of displacement for the purposes of the The Uniform Relocation and Real Estate Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended, and any successor or related federal legislation.
Termination by Landlord in the last twelve (12) months of the Term will eliminate the Renewal Term but will allow Tenant the full twelve (12) months of occupancy following the notice of termination and any month-to-month occupancy thereafter allowed by Landlord.
Right of Termination by Tenant. Tenant shall have the right to terminate this Lease for any reason without penalty by providing Landlord with 30 days prior written notice.

Utilities. Tenant shall pay when due all charges for electricity, light, power and all other utility services used in or supplied to the Premises. Landlord shall assume no responsibility for payment of any utilities.
Taxes and Other Levies. The Parties acknowledge that the Tenant is a tax-exempt municipal entity and is not subject to the payment of real estate taxes for property used for public purposes Tenant shall apply for leasehold exempt tax status if applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall preclude Tenant from contesting any charge or taxes, interest, or penalties levied against the Premises. The failure of Tenant to pay such taxes, interest, or penalties during the pendency of the contest shall not constitute a default under this Lease. Tenant's tax responsibilities under this section shall survive the expiration, cancellation, or termination of this Lease.


SECTION 4. CONDITION AND ENJOYMENT OF PREMISES. ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS. SURRENDER
Covenant of Quiet Enjoyment. Landlord covenants and agrees that Tenant, upon paying the rent and upon observing and keeping the covenants, agreements, and conditions of this Lease on its part to be kept, observed and performed, shall lawfully enjoy the Premises (subject to the provisions of this Lease) during the Term without hindrance or molestation by Landlord.
Tenant's Duty to Maintain Premises and Right of Access.

If Tenant shall refuse or neglect to make needed repairs within thirty (30) days after written notice thereof sent by Landlord, unless such repair cannot be remedied by thirty (30) days, and Tenant shall have commenced and is diligently pursuing all necessary action to remedy such repair, Landlord, at Landlord's option, is authorized to either make such repairs and Tenant will promptly and within thirty (30) business days of demand reimburse Landlord for the reasonable cost thereof, or Landlord can immediately terminate this Lease by providing the Tenant with written notice thereof. Landlord shall have the right of access to the Premises for the purpose of inspecting and making repairs to the Premises, provided that except in the case of emergencies, Landlord shall first give notice to Tenant of Landlord's desire to enter the Premises and Landlord will schedule its entry so as to minimize any interference with Tenant's use of Premises.

Tenant further covenants not to do or suffer any waste or damage, comply in all respects with the laws, ordinances, orders, rules, regulations, and requirements of all federal, state and municipal governmental departments which may be applicable to the Premises or to the use or manner of use of the Premises, disfigurement or injury to any building or improvement on the Premises, or to fixtures and equipment thereof. The promotion and operation of the parking lot shall not include direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. In addition, Tenant covenants that Tenant shall not use said Premises for any other political functions, religious activities, or for-profit uses of any sort.

SECTION 5. ASSIGNMENT, SUBLEASE, AND LIENS
Assignment and Sublease. Tenant shall not assign this Lease in whole or in part. Tenant may not sublet the Premises or any part thereof to any other individual or entity without the written consent of Landlord in Landlord's sole discretion, provided that, Tenant may sublicense all or a portion of the Premises to another governmental entity rent free, provided however, that Tenant may receive in-kind contributions or direct reimbursement from such governmental entity for the actual cost of maintenance and repair of the Premises.
Tenant's Covenant against Encumbering Title. Tenant shall not do any act which shall in any way encumber the fee simple estate of the Landlord in and to the

Premises, nor shall the interest or estate of the Landlord in the Premises be in any way subject to any claim by way of lien or encumbrance, whether by operation of law or by virtue of any express or implied contract by Tenant any claim to, or lien upon, the Premises arising from any act or omission of Tenant shall accrue only against the leasehold estate of Tenant and shall be subject to and subordinate to the paramount title and rights of Landlord in and to the Premises.

5.3 Tenant's Covenant against Liens. Tenant shall not permit the Premises to become subject to any mechanic's, laborer's, or materialmen's liens on account of labor or material furnished to Tenant or claimed to have been furnished to Tenant. In case of any such lien attaching, Tenant shall immediately pay and remove such lien, or it may contest and appeal it. If Tenant contests the lien, it shall furnish security or indemnify Landlord in a manner reasonably satisfactory to Landlord to protect Landlord against any defense or expense arising from such lien.
