Does city council need bullet proof glass?
City council approves $4 MILLION of Council Chamber upgrades including a dais encased in bullet proof glass. They only care about their safety, not the residents sitting in the chamber. Maybe consider a metal detector?
1) Approve a budget adjustment in the amount of $3,852,000 from the Public, Educational and Government Access (PEG) fund balance to construct City Council Chamber Audiovisual Broadcast Upgrades and Facility Improvements.
2) Approve the plans, specifications and contract documents for the City Council Chamber Audiovisual Broadcast Upgrades and Facility Improvements.
3) Approve the Engineer’s Estimate, Construction Contingency and Project Funding Summary.
4) Authorize staff to solicit competitive bids and award construction contracts to the lowest responsive and responsible bidders, in accordance with the City’s purchasing policies and procedures, within the approved project budget.
