Memorandum
The attached resolution authorizes the summary publication of Ordinance No. ORD-09-16. The Ordinance amends Sections 1:312, 1:313 and 1:314 of Chapter 14, Purchasing, Contracting and Selling Procedure, of the City Code. The amendments to Chapter 14 update the existing City bidding processes to provide greater flexibility in publishing solicitations for goods and services and receipt of bid and proposals while retaining the integrity of the competitive bid process. By allowing alternative bidding options, such as E-Publishing, the City expects to improve service to vendors as well as provide the City a greener, more cost effective alternative to the traditional paper process.

The City Charter contains provisions to allow summary publications of ordinances that are in excess of 500 words in length. The purpose of this resolution is to lessen the City’s cost resulting from the required publication of the revisions to the City Code.
