If the Buffalo Bills are to remain in Erie County, area officials want to make sure the next lease agreement would make it very hard for them to leave.
The county's best bet could be including a heavy financial penalty for breaking the lease, though even that wouldn't fully protect them.
"That's all part of the negotiations," Poloncarz said. "I want to ensure that we have a lease that keeps the Bills here for many years to come."
The current lease is scheduled to run out in July 31, 2013. Poloncarz has said he hopes to have the lease deal signed by the end of this year. It's anticipated that any agreement would be for 10 to 15 years.
