Body
I. SUMMARY

On June 22, 2020 the City entered into a professional services contract with Interwest Consulting Group, Inc. (Exhibit No. 1) to provide interim Public Works and Community Services/Parks & Recreation Departments Oversight and Organizational Review Services.

The City Manager advised the City Councilmembers that she would return to the City Council to add money to, and extend the term of this contract, which she did at the City Council meeting of July 21, 2020.
