AGENDA ITEM

 

Termination of Agreement for Legal Services

 

           CITY MANAGER’S

                  APPROVAL          

 

 

PREVIOUS ACTIONS: On January 1, 1996 the City Council entered into an agreement with the law firm of McDonough, Holland and Allen.                                                                                                                                                     

RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION: Terminate the agreement under provisions of the agreement which provide a sixty (60) day written notice as outlined in Section 6 of the attached agreement.                                                                                                                                                  

COMMENTS:  With the City Councils decision to appoint a fulltime in-house City Attorney, it is no longer necessary to retain the existing agreement for legal services.  It is expected that the new City Attorney will bring back to the City Council new agreement(s) covering a range of special legal services if he feels they are needed.  The termination agreement will provide a carry over period for the new City Attorney to work with representatives from McDonough, Holland and Allen to ensure a transition on outstanding work activities.

This has been reviewed with the new City Attorney and he realizes one of his first steps, beyond getting to know Brentwood, will be to review all existing legal activities on an issue-by-issue and department-by-department basis.
