Title
Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 1 to the Collaboration Agreement with Community Action Network for the Management of Bryant and Northside Community Centers to Increase Funding from $150,000.00 to $168,150.00 for Fiscal Year 2020 ($18,150.00)
Memorandum
Attached for your review is a resolution to increase funding in the amount of $18,150.00 for Community Action Network's contract for the management of Bryant and Northside Community Centers for Fiscal Year 2020.

PAC recommended funding this from the FY2020 Parks & Recreation Services operating budget. This additional funding is available because of the Parks "fairness resolution" that increased the Parks operating budget in. This will help ensure that residents are receiving the programs and assistance needed at the Community Centers. Staff concurs with this recommendation.
