This ordinance authorizes the purchase of equipment and materials from universal term contracts and from formal and informal bids to complete the School Zone Flashing Beacons - Citywide School Zone Flashing Beacon Upgrades project in an amount up to $527,651.00.

The work for this project is being performed by Department of Public Service personnel. Project costs incurred by Public Service include salaries, overhead, overtime, equipment, and materials.
