Title: To authorize the Director of Public Service to enter into a contract modification with Transystems Corporation of Ohio in connection with the Arterial Street Rehabilitation - East Broad Street Widening project; to authorize the expenditure of up to $20,000.00 for the contract modification from an existing Auditor’s Certificate; and to declare an emergency.

Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify a professional services contract with Transystems Corporation of Ohio to add additional funds for design of the Arterial Street Rehabilitation - E. Broad Street Widening project in an amount of up to $20,000.00.
Ordinance 1454-2017 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with Transystems Corporation of Ohio for the Arterial Street Rehabilitation - E.
