SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT NO. 2 TO AN AGREEMENT WITH CSG CONSULTANTS, INC. TO PROVIDE ON-CALL PLANNING SERVICES (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

On December 6, 2016, the City entered into an agreement with the firm CSG Consultants, Inc. (CSG) to provide on-call planning services (Exhibit No. 1). This agreement was subsequently amended in November 2017 (Exhibit No. 2). Due to continued growth in development activity within the City, coupled with the loss of a number of City staff within the Planning Division, the need for the on-call services provided by CSG has increased, requiring a second amendment to the agreement with CSG (Exhibit No. 3). Staff anticipates an eventual reduction for CSG services as the Planning Division fills vacant positions. Staff is requesting that Council approve this amendment to the agreement with CSG Consultants, Inc. to maintain the high level of service provided by the Planning Division.

III. ALTERNATIVES

TAKE any other action the City Council deems appropriate that is consistent with the requirements of law.
