BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify an existing engineering agreement with ms Consultants, Inc. for the Blueprint Columbus Hilltop Eureka/Fremont
project, CIP 650870-100802. This project is being completed as part of the City’s Blueprint Columbus program. This project will construct various types of green infrastructure (GI) throughout the
