PENTICTON - Penticton city council has agreed to a lease agreement with Trio Marine Group's Skaha Marina in order for the restaurant to retain its liquor license.
Council approved a staff recommendation at its Dec. 20 regular meeting to accept the two-year lease pending provincial approval.
The provision seeking provincial approval was added because the property line between city and Crown land runs through the centre of the marina building, interim chief administrative officer Mitch Moroziuk said.
He told council should Trio not enter into a two-year lease the company could risk losing its liquor license, costing a considerable investment in time to have a new permit issued.
Council approved the city entering into four agreements with Trio Marine on Dec. 1, two of which were a license to use and a sub-license of occupation to allow the marina to operate for two years.
