Accept Kaiser Permanente Donation for Annual Senior Center Health & Wellness Faire and Related Budget Amendment

Kaiser Permanente has offered to donate $500 to offset the cost of the Senior Center's Second Annual "Be Strong, Live Long" Health & Wellness Faire & barbecue lunch, which takes place on May 18, 2018.

In accordance with City Policy and Procedure #016, the City recommends acceptance of the donation.

The action being considered does not constitute a "project" within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA") pursuant to CEQ...
