Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL TO AMEND THE BLANKET PURCHASE ORDERS FOR WORTHINGTON FORD, LONG BEACH, CA, FOR DEALERSHIP PARTS, REPAIRS, AND SERVICE ON CITY-OWNED FORD VEHICLES

Body
I. SUMMARY

City Council approval is requested to authorize the Purchasing Department to appropriate an additional $20,000 to the existing $23,066.35 blanket purchase order agreement for Worthington Ford.
