TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute all documents necessary to amend Contract No. 33651 with Howroyd Wright Employment Agency, Inc., dba AppleOne Employment Services, of Long Beach, CA, for temporary staffing services, to renew the contract for an additional one-year term through January 4, 2021.

City Council approval is requested to authorize the City Manager, or designee, to execute an amendment to Contract No. 33651 with AppleOne, to renew the contract for an additional one-year period through January 4, 2021.
