TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute an agreement, and any related documents, with Platt College Los Angeles, LLC, to facilitate student internship opportunities at the Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine, Animal Care Services facility, for a period of four years, December 1, 2017 through November 30, 2021.
