SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL OF THE SIXTH AMENDMENT TO THE PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT WITH TCM GROUP INC., A HILL INTERNATIONAL COMPANY, TO EXPAND THE SCOPE OF SERVICES TO INCLUDE PROVIDING AN INTERIM CONSTRUCTION INSPECTOR FOR THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT FOR A PERIOD OF THREE MONTHS (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
