This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to modify the contract with O.A. Spencer, Inc. for the King Arts Complex Improvements Design project.

Background: Previous projects have addressed minor HVAC concerns as they arose, however the King Arts Complex is in need of a complete HVAC piping overhaul as well as potential redistribution of existing units to better service entire building. Renovations to the lobby, auditorium, and kitchen are a secondary priority as budget allows.
