dhcp client tries renewal of IP address every 2 minutes

I get this error in /var/log/syslog. I am not sure how to prevent refreshing of IP address. I always get assigned the same IP address but the problem is it does that frequently.

dhclient[6145]: DHCPREQUEST of 10.31.40.152 on eth0134324 to 172.20.148.30 port 67 dhclient[6145]: DHCPACK of 10.31.40.152 from 172.20.148.30 root: /etc/dhcp/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/avahi-autoipd returned non-zero exit status 1 dhclient[6145]: bound to 10.31.40.152 -- renewal in 120 seconds.
