Background: Around the world, human trafficking has stripped nearly 25 million people of their safety, dignity, and liberty – disproportionately affecting historically underserved and marginalized communities. During National Human Trafficking Prevention Month, we reaffirm our commitment to ending this inhumane and immoral practice in all its forms. And as we bring perpetrators to justice, we renew our pledge to help survivors recover and rebuild their lives.
Recommended Motion: Proclaim January 2023 as Human Trafficking Awareness Month in Klamath County. No fiscal impact.
Background: The carpet at the Main Library was installed in 2000 and it shows a lot of wear and tear. Last year we replaced the carpet in half of the library and this year we would like to replace the other half. We do not anticipate having to close the library for this project. Maintenance contacted 4 carpet specialists and received two quotes:
• Cardinal Flooring and Supplies: $66,470.73
• Diamond Home Improvement: $74,074.51
Recommended Motion: Authorize the Library Director to accept the quote from Cardinal Flooring and Supply to replace the carpet at the Main Library, 126 S. 3rd street, Klamath Falls. Fiscal Impact: $66,470.73 from the Klamath County Library Reserve line item 2511-5010-3060-5000-70220 Facilities Improvement
