The original agreement was for a not- to-exceed amount of$20,000. On November 27, 2007, the City Council approved Amendment No. 1 to the agreement, increasing the agreement by $10,000 for a not-to-exceed amount of$30,000. The amendment allowed for an additional $5,000 for issues related to the Government Center, and $5,000 for services for work related to the planned Edison Tehachapi Power Transmission Project. On February 12, 2008, the City Council approved Amendment No. 2 to the agreement, increasing the agreement by $10,000 for a not-to-exceed amount of$40,000. The amendment allowed for an additional $10,000 for issues related to the Government Center. The Council authorized construction contracts for the Government Center Parking Structure Project. As a result of this work, new issues have arisen with Edison related to point of service. There continue to be issues associated with the Government Center projects, and Strategic Connections has been helpful in resolving them. Due to the uncertainty of dealing with the utilities, staff is requesting approval of Amendment No. 3 in the amount of$10,000 ipto ensure adequate resources through the end of the fiscal year. This would bring the total compensation to a not-to-exceed amount of$50,000. ,q1,0 S AGENDA DATE: September 9, 2008 Page 2 SUBJECT: AMENDMENT NO. 3 TO AGREEMENT NO.
