|SUBJECT:||Annual renewal of agreements with Clifford & Brown for legal services regarding general miscellaneous issues (not to exceed $75,000) and general personnel issues (not to exceed $75,000).|
Staff recommends approval of the agreements.
During the course of the year, the City is required to provide legal services to represent the City, its officers and employees with respect to various miscellaneous and personnel matters. This includes such matters as representing the City in personnel matters and advising the City in pre-litigation matters. Under the terms of our long-term contract with Clifford & Brown, they offer such services at a very reasonable hourly rate. At the end of every fiscal year, these contracts are renewed. As such, the City desires to renew its legal services with Clifford & Brown for General Miscellaneous Issues in an amount not to exceed $75,000 and General Personnel Issues in an amount not to exceed $75,000 for fiscal year 2020/2021.
