§ 2.2-2273. Contracts, leases and other arrangements.

A. In connection with the operation of a facility owned or controlled by the Authority, the Authority may enter into contracts, leases, and other arrangements with any person (i) granting the privilege of using or improving the facility or any portion or facility thereof or space therein consistent with the purposes of this article; (ii) conferring the privilege of supplying goods, commodities, things, services, or facilities at the facility; (iii) making available services to be furnished by the Authority or its agents at the facility; and (iv) providing for the payment therefor.

In each case the Authority may establish the terms and conditions and fix the charges, rentals, or fee for the privilege or service, which shall be reasonable and uniform for the same class of privilege or service at each facility and shall be established with due regard to the property and improvements used and the expenses of operation to the Authority.

B. Except as may be limited by the terms and conditions of any grant, loan or agreement authorized by § 2.2-2271, the Authority may by contract, lease, or other arrangements, upon a consideration fixed by it, grant to any qualified person, for a term not to exceed thirty years, the privilege of operating, as agent of the Authority or otherwise, any facility owned or controlled by the Authority; provided that no person shall be granted any authority to operate a facility other than as a public facility or to enter into any contracts, leases, or other arrangements in connection with the operation of the facility that the Authority might not have undertaken under subsection A.

C. In connection with a project leased to or financed or refinanced for a trust instrumentality of the United States where payments or contributions by the Commonwealth and any political subdivision, together with amounts pursuant to an agreement with such trust instrumentality to pay rent or other amounts, are sufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the Authority's bonds issued to finance or refinance such project, the Authority may agree that such trust instrumentality shall assume all responsibility for the acquisition, construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of the project and may further agree that when the principal of all such bonds of the Authority and the interest thereon have been paid in full or provision made therefor satisfactory to the Authority, the trust instrumentality may acquire the Authority's interest in such project without payment of additional consideration.
