City Manager Jill Ingram (or Seal Beach department heads) approved eight contracts between April 1 and June 30.

Ingram this week updated the City Council on contract she and her department heads had approved from April 1 to July 30.

Ingram provides the council with this report on a quarterly basis. The City Council received and filed the report on Monday, Aug. 9. This was a Consent Calendar item. The council approves consent items collectively, without discussion, unless specific items are pulled for individual consideration. This item was not pulled from the Consent Calendar.

“The City Manager has the authority to approve and execute contracts up to the amount of $36,514,” wrote City Clerk Gloria Harper in her staff report to the council.

Larger contracts require City Council approval. “Seal Beach Municipal Code Section 3.20.005 authorizes the City Manager to delegate spending authority to Department Heads,” Harper wrote.

“Other than the Director of Public Works and the Director of Finance/City Treasurer, this authority shall not exceed $15,000 per purchase or contract,” Harper wrote.

“For the Director of Public Works the limit is established per the City’s Charter Section 1010,” Harper wrote.

“For the Director of Finance/City Treasurer, other than for Finance Department expenditures which is set at $15,000, there is additional authority to authorize purchases for City Departments up to the City Manager’s established contract signing authority,” Harper wrote.
