As long as the lease remains unsigned, the COG is under no obligation to carry out the terms, and the new council could overturn the decision or put it on hold, etc.

The bottom line is that I don't think that a lease will actually be signed and carried out unless the new mayor and council are on board, and it seems that Jamison either doesn't understand that or he doesn't care.
The man has certainly not been acting with any urgency. Perhaps this time once the lease is approved he will operate a little quicker, assuming he still has the "speculators" lined up.
