Title
Resolution to Amend the Local Street Fund FY18 Budget by Appropriating Funds from Fund Balance and to Approve the Purchase of Road Maintenance Equipment from Falcon Road Maintenance Equipment LLC (MiDeal - $24,172.55 and National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) - $15,344.00) (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum

In the summer months, staff uses it for cross-walk maintenance or any off-hours asphalt work done during resurfacing projects when heavy traffic must be avoided.
