RECOMMENDATION

Staff recommends the City Council approve an agreement with Southwest Lift & Equipment Inc. for the purchase and installation of in-ground vehicle lifts located at the Culver City Transportation Facility in an amount not to exceed $1,299,938, which includes a contingency amount of $112,263.00 for unexpected costs.
