BY COUNCILOR ATKINS:
RESOLVED, that the proper city officers are hereby authorized to execute an extension to the current agreement with Fryberger, Buchanan, Smith & Frederick, P.A., under which that firm will provide professional services related to the city’s 2005 state legislative program, which agreement is on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. __________, at a cost to the city of not to exceed $3,433, which shall be payable from the General Fund 100-700-1402-5312.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution extends for one month the current agreement with our lobbyist as the current contract expires on June 30, 2005, and the state legislature is still in session. The administration is in the process of reviewing proposals for lobbying services and expects to bring a new annual contract to the council by the end of July 2005. The amount authorized is consistent with current contract.
