CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 15

Meeting Date:     March 28, 2000

 Subject/Title:      Agreement for Special Legal Services  

 Submitted by:     Dennis Beougher, City Attorney

 Approved by:      Jon Elam, City Manager

 RECOMMENDATION   

Authorize the Mayor to execute an agreement with McDonough, Holland & Allen to provide special legal services on as needed basis.

 PREVIOUS ACTION

On January 25, 2000, the City Council terminated the existing contract with McDonough, Holland & Allen and was effective 60 days later.  Since the contract termination, the City Council has appointed a full time City Attorney.  In order to provide a smooth transition and to provide for special legal services in the most efficient manner, particularly with pending litigation, a new contract needs to be executed with this law firm.   

 BACKGROUND

McDonough, Holland & Allen has provided, and has agreed to provide on as needed basis, prompt provision of special legal services to City Council and staff.  The firm’s knowledge of pending litigation and its knowledge of Brentwood law, practices, and procedures can be a benefit to the City.   The legal services will be provided subject to the direction and the supervision of the City Attorney.

 After March 28th, all the firm’s work will be approved and supervised by the City Attorney, prior to payment.
