STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The purpose of this resolution is to authorize proper city officials to modify City Contract No. 18987 with the Northeast Minnesota Office of Job Training for the provision of dislocated worker services to Duluth residents. The original contract was for the provision of federal dislocated worker services only. The modification adds state dislocated worker services and funding to deliver them. The addition of state services and funding to Duluth residents was precipitated by the action of the State Legislature appropriating funds.

The total contract once modified shall not exceed $68,190 in federal funds and $96,869 in state funds for a total of $165,059, payable from Fund 268, Budget Items 6249 and 6251 respectively.
