Tuesday’s council meeting was so brief that several would-be attendees missed it. There was only one working elevator in the building, which made ascension to the 9th floor painfully slow. By the time the stranded ones arrived around 2:15, lights were out in the chamber and those in the meeting were leaving. Advice: arrive early!
This is what the council approved:
•Amendment to an agreement for legal advice, guidance and representation. The amendment will increase compensation by an additional $200,000, making the total compensation $400,000
•A resolution to modify terms and conditions of employment for employees represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)
• A funding agreement with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Authority (MTA) to receive a $300,000 grant to hire a City Representative for developing a Traffic Management Plan, Neighborhood Management Plan, and a Funding Plan to accommodate stadium attendees
•Award of contract for the Emergency Generator Replacement Project, per Bid No. CB-16-10, in the amount of $1,240,730; plus a 10% contingency of $124,073 for a total project construction allotment of $1,364,803
•Payment of an invoice submitted for residential sound insulation construction work for $24,981.11; and a resolution amending the Residential Sound Insulation Department Fiscal Year 2016-17 Annual Budget
The council also approved adoption of a resolution authorizing the issuance of refunding bonds for the former Inglewood Redevelopment Agency.
