Purpose and Recommended Action
Recommendation

This is a request for City Council to authorize the Acting City Manager to enter into Amendment Number One to an agreement with Heinfeld, Meech & Co., P.C. for a performance audit of the Glendale Onboard (GO) Transportation Program in an amount not to exceed $211,723.
