TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to execute the Sixteenth Amendment to Historical Site Lease No. 24291 with Rancho Los Alamitos Foundation to provide for the annual management fee for lease year 2013-2014. (District 3)

Therefore, once the budget is adopted for the proceeding fiscal year, PRM annually requests City Council authorization to amend the Lease reflecting the management fee for the corresponding lease year.
