Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Service to modify and add additional funds to the UIRF - General Engineering 2015 contract with Resource International, Inc.
Ordinance 2578-2014 authorized the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with Resource International, Inc., for the UIRF - General Engineering 2015 contract.
