Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with Danbert Electrical Corp. for the Valleyview Street Lighting Improvements Project in an amount up to $216,033.08, and to encumber funds with the Department of Public Service for prevailing wage services in the amount of $2,000.00, for Division of Power Capital Improvements Project No. 670782-100000.
