City Council set to finalize RFP for Core Review


During its September 28 Core Service Review Steering Committee meeting, the Committee (comprised of all members of Council) reached consensus on a draft Request for Proposal (RFP). Pending minor changes to the document presented by Dr. Roshan Danesh, the final RFP will return to Council for ratification later this month.
