The bids allow the establishment of one year contracts with an option to extend an additional year.

This legislation will authorize the addition of up to $450,000 to these existing contracts to allow property maintenance services to continue until April 2018. The final amounts for each contract will be determined by the Director of Development based on the number of properties acquired by the program and the maintenance services needed.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funds for these contract extensions are allocated from the Land Management Fund ($450,000).

EMERGENCY JUSTIFICATION: Emergency action is requested in order to continue to provide vital program services without interruption.
