TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute contract amendments, including a term extension to January 4, 2026, to Contract ML16017 for Local Government Match Program funding with the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee through the South Coast Air Quality Management District. (Citywide)

Under the contract, the MSRC may monitor a vehicle’s status at any time up to five years after the vehicle is placed into service. On March 27, 2018, the first amendment to the contract was executed to extend the term of the contract to August 5, 2023; however, due to further delays in purchasing the vehicles, authorization is being requested to extend the term of the contract to January 4, 2026. The proposed change extends the term of the City of Long Beach’s obligations under the grant beyond what was originally authorized by the City Council; therefore, City Council authorization is required to extend the term of the contract with the MSRC.

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Taylor M. Anderson on December 23,...
