Alameda Journal: USS Hornet clears back rent with the city, March 27, 2014


Representatives of the USS Hornet Museum have given the city a check for $215,385, an amount that will allow the museum to clear the back rent it owes the city.

The payment comes as a result of a lease that city officials approved with the Hornet Foundation five years ago, when they agreed to write off the $555,000 that the aircraft carrier museum then owed in rent if it could pay half the amount.

"We appreciate the city of Alameda's commitment to working with us," said Randall Ramian, the foundation's CEO. "While the Hornet still faces challenges, this is a significant milestone for us and the city in building our longer-term relationship. Alameda continues to be a great partner."
