TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to increase Munis Contract No. 31900668 with American Correctional Solutions, Inc., of Irvine, CA, to continue nursing services provided to inmates, in the amount of $400,000, for a revised total amount not to exceed $500,000, and to extend the term of the contract to May 31, 2020.
