31          agrees that at the expiration or sooner termination of this Lease, Lessee will quit and
32          surrender the said Premises without notice, and in a neat and clean condition and in as
33          good condition as received by Lessee, ordinary wear and tear excepted, and will deliver
34          up all keys belonging to said Premises to the Lessor or Lessor's agents.

35   6.     Utilities. The Lessee hereby covenants and agrees to pay, when and as due, all charges
36          for heat, light, electricity, and for all other public utilities, which shall be used in or
37          charged against the Premises during the full term of this Lease. Any utilities which are

 1   8.    Insurance.

 2         (a)    It is recognized that the State of Washington, including all its agencies and
 3                departments (which includes the Lessee) is self-insured for all exposure to general
 4                liability and vehicle liability as provide in ch. 4.92 RCW and RCW 43.41.280
 5                through 43.41.350. Under theses provisions, the State of Washington is
 6                continuously self-insured up to a predetermined self-insurance retention level
 7                ($10 million) at which point excess insurance provides coverage. The self-
 8                insurance program is funded by a liability account established by RCW 4.92.130
 9                and financed by annual premiums assessed to state agencies, including the Lessee.
11         (b)    Lessee’s Assumption of Risk. All personal property kept by Lessee on or upon
12                the Premises shall be kept at Lessee’s sole risk. Lessee shall at all times during
13                the Lease Term maintain sufficient insurance coverage to cover damage, loss or
14                destruction to such personal property, in the full replacement value of such
15                personal property.

16   9.    Care of Premises. The Lessor shall not be called upon to make any improvements or
17         repair of any kind upon said Premises except as otherwise specified herein, and said
18         Premises shall at all times be kept and used by Lessee and in accordance with the law of
19         the State of Washington and regulations of Snohomish County and City of Lynnwood,
20         and in accordance with all directions, rules and regulations of the health officers, fire
21         marshal, building inspector or other proper officer or regulatory body, at the sole cost and
22         expense of said Lessee.

23         Lessee will permit no waste, damage, or injury to the Premises and, at Lessees' own cost
24         and expense, will keep all interior drainage pipes free and open and will protect interior
25         water, heating, and other pipes so that they will not freeze or become clogged, and will
26         repair all interior leaks or by reason of Lessee's failure to protect and keep free, open, and
27         unfrozen any of the interior pipes and plumbing on the said Premises. Lessee shall
28         promptly replace any broken glass. Lessee shall be liable for the removal of ice and snow
29         from the sidewalks adjacent to the Leased Premises.

30         Lessees will not hang material from roof trusses.

31   10.   Use. The Lessee shall conduct and carry on in said Premises, continuously during each
32         and every business day of the term hereof, the business for which said Premises are
33         leased, and shall not use the Premises for illegal purposes or purposes contrary to any
34         federal, state or local law. The Lessee agrees that no use or activity, or anything done in
35         or about the Premises which will increase the present rate of insurance required
36         hereunder, provided, however, if the Lessee shall engage in such business with the
37         consent of the Lessor, Lessee shall pay such increase.

38   11.   Liens and Insolvency. Lessee shall keep the leased Premises and the property in which
39         the leased Premises are situated free from any liens arising out of any work performed,
40         materials furnished, or obligations incurred by Lessees. In the event Lessee becomes
41         insolvent, voluntarily or involuntarily, bankrupt, or if a receiver, assignee, or other

                                                                                           Page 4 of 12
 1         liquidating officer is appointed for the business of Lessee, the Lessor may cancel this
 2         Lease at Lessor's option.

 3   12.   Advances by Lessor for Lessee. If Lessee shall fail to do anything required to be done
 4         by Lessee under the terms of this Lease, except to pay rent, Lessor may, at its sole option,
 5         do such act or thing on behalf of Lessee, and upon notification to Lessee of the cost
 6         thereof to the Lessor, Lessee shall promptly pay Lessor the amount of that cost, plus
 7         interest at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per annum from the date that the cost was
 8         incurred by Lessor to the date of Lessee's payment.

 9   13.   Assignment or Subletting. This Lease and its terms are particular to the Lessee due to
10         the nature of the public entity, the relationship between the Lessee and Lessor, and the
11         unique service to the City of Lynnwood performed by the Lessee. Therefore, the parties
12         specifically agree in consideration of the above factors that the Lessee shall not let or
13         sublet or assign the whole or any portion of the leased Premises or property.

14   14.   Access. Lessee will allow Lessor or Lessor's agents free access at all reasonable times to
15         said Premises for the purpose of inspection or of making repairs, additions, or
16         alternations to the Premises or any property owned by or under the control of Lessor, but
17         this right shall not be construed as an agreement on the part of the Lessor to make any
18         repairs, all of such repairs to be made as otherwise provided herein. The Lessor shall
19         have the right to place and maintain "For Rent" signs in a conspicuous place on said
20         Premises for thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of this Lease.

21   15.   Locks. Upon approval of the Lessor, additional locks may be placed upon doors of the
22         Premises. Access to the Premises by the Lessor shall be provided for but only for
23         emergency purposes.

24   16.   Fixtures. The Lessee shall have the right during the term of this Lease, upon prior
25         written consent of the Lessor (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), to
26         make alterations, attach fixtures and erect additions, structures or signs, in or upon the
27         Premises. Performance of any of the rights authorized above shall be conducted in
28         compliance with all applicable governmental regulations, building codes, including
29         obtaining any necessary permits. Any fixtures, additions, or structures so placed in or
30         upon or attached to the Premises shall be and remain the property of the Lessee and may
31         be removed therefrom by the Lessee upon the termination of this Lease. Any damage
32         caused by the removal of any of the above items shall be repaired by the Lessee and the
33         Premises shall be restored to the condition in which it existed immediately prior to the
34         installation of such fixtures, additions or structures.

35   17.   Fire and Other Casualty. In the event that any of the buildings constituting the
36         Premises are destroyed or damaged by fire, earthquake or other casualty to such an extent
37         as to render the same untentantable in whole or in a substantial part thereof, it shall be the
38         option of the Lessor to rebuild and repair the same. After the happening of any such
39         casualty, the Lessee shall give Lessor or Lessor's agents immediate written notice thereof.
40         Lessor shall have not more than ninety (90) days after the date of such notification to
41         notify the Lessee in writing of Lessor's intentions to rebuild or repair the damaged or

                                                                                           Page 5 of 12
 1         destroyed building(s); Lessor shall prosecute the work of such rebuilding or repairing
 2         without unnecessary delay, and during such period the rent allocated to the damaged
 3         building(s) of the Premises shall be abated in the same ratio that the portion of the
 4         building(s) rendered for the time being unfit for occupancy shall bear to the whole of the
 5         building(s). If Lessor shall fail to give the notice required herein, Lessee shall have the
 6         right to declare this Lease terminated by written notice served upon Lessor or Lessor's
 7         agents prior to receiving such notice from Lessor. In the event this Lease shall be
 8         terminated in accordance with the provisions contained in this Lease, any deposits in the
 9         hands of the Lessor, shall be forthwith returned to the Lessee.

10   18.   Fees. Lessee shall be liable for, and shall pay throughout the term of this Lease, all
11         license and excise fees and occupation taxes covering the business conducted by it on the
12         Premises, and all taxes on the property of such Lessee on the Premises.

13   19.   Governmental Fees. All fees due a city or town; county or state on account of any
14         inspection made on the Premises by any officer thereof, shall be paid by Lessee.

15   20.   Sales and Business Taxes. The rent quoted is exclusive of any sales, franchise, business
16         or occupation, or other taxes based on rents, and should any such taxes apply, or be
17         enacted during the term of this Lease, they shall be paid by Lessee, but if not so paid by
18         Lessee within thirty (30) days of written notice by Lessor, Lessor shall have the option to
19         pay such taxes on behalf of Lessee and to collect the amount expended by Lessor on
20         behalf of Lessee hereunder as additional rent.

21   21.   Signs. All signs or symbols placed in the windows or doors of the Premises, or upon any
22         exterior part of the building, by Lessee, shall be subject to the prior approval of the
23         Lessor or Lessor's agents. Any signs so placed on the Premises shall be so placed upon
24         the understanding and agreement that Lessee will remove same at the termination of the
25         tenancy herein created and repair of any damage or injury to the Premises caused thereby,
26         and if not so removed by Lessee, then Lessor may have same so removed at Lessee's
27         expense. In the event Lessee shall place signs or symbols on the exterior of said building,
28         or in the windows or doors where they are visible from the street, that are not satisfactory
29         to Lessor or Lessor's agents, Lessor or Lessor's agents may immediately demand the
30         removal of such signs or symbols, and the refusal of Lessee to comply with such
31         demands within a period of twenty-four (24) hours will constitute a breach of this Lease,
32         and entitle Lessor to immediately recover possession of said Premises in the manner
33         provided by law.

34         The approval of Lessor or Lessor's agents to signs as referred to herein shall not be
35         arbitrarily or capriciously withheld by Lessor or Lessor's agents.22.

36         Default and Re-Entry. If any rents above reserved, or any part thereof, shall be and
37         remain unpaid when the same shall become due, or if Lessee shall violate or default in
38         any of the covenants and agreements herein contained, the Lessor may cancel this Lease
39         upon giving the notice required by law, and re-enter said Premises, but notwithstanding
