Title
Resolution - A Resolution Approving an Amendment to the Contract for Design Services with Wier and Associates, Inc. for Day Miar Rd. (East Broad St. to Seeton Rd.) for an amount not to Exceed $36,500.00 (Street Bond Fund)

Requested Action
Consider a resolution approving an amendment to the contract for design services with Wier and Associates, Inc. for Day Miar Rd. (East Broad St. to Seeton Rd.) for an amount not to exceed $36,500.00.
