Title
Chief Administrative Office, Facility Division, recommending the Board adopt and authorize the Chair to sign Resolution 027-2019 authorizing the Chief Administrative Officer, or designee, the delegated authority to approve Utility Agreements in the amount of $175,000 or less with various utility agencies for the relocation or establishment of utilities for public works, maintenance, and Capital Improvement Program projects to allow for project and administrative efficiency.
