I. SUMMARY

For purposes of public access and transparency, it is critical that the City ensure the Audio/Video (AV) equipment for City Council and other City meetings function smoothly during public meetings and deliver high quality content to the public access channel and internet.

Services were subsequently added for remote management of City Council Special Meetings. Additional funds in the amount of $24,900 are requested to extend the existing agreement with Mediastar Inc. by six (6) months to December 31, 2020, and to add additional on-site and remote support services for all City meetings as well as provide training to City staff on the basic management and operation of the AV equipment.
Staff will conduct an RFP during the extended term of the contract to enable other venders to compete for this work going forward.
