The council voted unanimously to approve:

  • awarding a contract for the construction of the Central Cities Navigation Center to Thomco Construction Co in the amount of $4,267,450. The center will be located at 13871 West. St.  Most of the money to build and operate the center, which will have facilities to serve 85 people, comes from funds processed by the County of Orange, and:
  • a contract with Volunteers of America of Los Angeles for the operation of the center, which will serve the unsheltered of Garden Grove, Fountain Valley and Westminster.

Also, the council voted 7-0 to award a contract to Southstar Engineering and Consulting, Inc. for the management of construction of a major bicycle corridor in the city.
