Action to Add a Senior Electrical Estimator Position for Silicon Valley Power
In August 2017, the City Council approved an Agreement with Asplundh Construction, LLC to provide contract support to Silicon Valley Power (SVP) Electrical Estimating Group with a total not to exceed of $750,000 over a three year term.
