That the Board of Port Commissioners adopt Resolution No. 3291, making certain findings as set forth in such Resolution, including, without limitation, the following:

c)The Board authorizes the General Manager pursuant to Section 22035 and 22050 of the Public Contract Code to engage Letner Roofing Company to commence the immediate removal of the tile roofing system on the building located at 1691 Spinnaker Drive and the installation of a replacement tile roofing system utilizing the Tremco Roofing system for a total cost (materials and labor included) not to exceed $120,000.00.
