TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to execute an amendment to Agreement No. 32483 with Galls, an Aramark Company, LLC, a Long Beach-based business, to furnish, service and deliver uniforms and accessories to the Long Beach Police Department (PD), consistent with Specifications No. PA-00412, to increase the contract authority in a total amount not to exceed $260,000, and to extend the agreement through September 30, 2015; and
