CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 5

Meeting Date: June 28, 2005

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to execute an amendment to the current professional services agreement of $40,000 with McDonough Holland Allen to an amount not to exceed $80,000 for housing related projects for Fiscal Year 2004/2005

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to execute an amendment to the current professional services agreement of $40,000 with McDonough Holland Allen to an amount not to exceed $80,000 for housing related projects for Fiscal Year 2004/2005.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 25, 2004, the City Council directed staff to move forward with an implementation Resolution for the City’s Affordable Housing Ordinance 756 and to make recommendations on proposed amendments to Ordinance 756 – the Affordable Housing Program.

On July 13, 2004, the City Council authorized the City Manager to execute a Professional Services Agreement for Legal Services with McDonough Holland & Allen in an amount not to exceed $40,000 for the 2004/2005 fiscal year.

On April 12, 2005, the City Council approved a resolution amending the 2004/2005 Operations Budget to include $210,000 for City Housing project-related expenses.

BACKGROUND
It was the original intention to stay within the scope of our current professional services agreement with McDonough Holland Allen PC, although unforeseen additional legal expenses were incurred due to the City’s attorney position vacancy. These additional funds were expended for legal expenses incurred for the Eden Housing, Brentwood Senior Commons project, the proposed Davis Camp acquisition, the amendment to Ordinance 756 and for monitoring the KB Orchard affordable units.

FISCAL IMPACT
The amendment to this professional services agreement would not require additional appropriations as it is budgeted in the Affordable Housing In-Lieu and Housing Funds.
