Among the items to be voted on are contracts with Unified Contracting Services for the Airport Fuel System Relocation Project, Brightly for facility assessment and asset management software, HDR Engineering for designing the Isett Avenue Corridor Reconstruction Project, and Bolton & Menk to study the potential for a Railroad Quiet Zone from the Hershey Lift Station to Dick Drake Way.
