BY COUNCILOR HOGG:00-0858R
RESOLUTION AMENDING CONTRACT NUMBER 18320, AS AMENDED, WITH FRYBERGER, BUCHANAN, SMITH & FREDERICK, P.A., FOR LEGAL SERVICES BY INCREASING THE AMOUNT PAYABLE BY AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $21,000.
BE IT RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to execute
an amendment, in the form filed as Public Document No. __________________,
to city Contract Number 18320, dated September 15, 1998, as amended, with
Fryberger, Buchanan, Smith & Frederick, P.A., for the provision of
legal services related to the condemnation of land previously owned by
the estate of Stanley A. Lepak and others, increasing the amount payable
thereunder by $21,000, payable from Fund 605.
The original amount of the contract was $67,000. However, this matter was complicated by unanticipated claims asserted by the corporate plaintiffs which resulted in the need to conduct extensive investigation and analysis of the damage claims asserted by these plaintiffs. Significant trial preparation was also required even though this matter was ultimately settled without the matter being tried.
The city attorney's office has reviewed the billing and determined that the legal services rendered were reasonable and proper.
