Law Department Peter Cohen, Assistant Attorney Law Department 11/28/2011 Outside Counsel Legal Contracts

CC:

DATE:

RE:

As of June 30, 2011, a number of the City's outside legal services contracts expired. On June 15, 2011, a notice of request for proposals was advertised, and the proposals were opened in the City Purchasing Office on June 28, 2011. Of the proposals, the evaluation committee recommended that contracts be awarded to Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader, LLC (the "Florio Firm") and Zarwin Baum DeVito Kaplan Schaer & Toddy, PC ("Zarwin Baum"). Unfortunately, these contracts were never awarded because for various reasons, the resolutions that were placed on City Council's docket were either removed by Administration or denied by Council. Therefore, the bids became stale. Since the bids are stale, contracts cannot be awarded, and the Law Department will need to re-issue an RFP for outside legal counsel services. Given the case load and emergent matters both of these firms were handling, the City authorized these firms to continue working on the files assigned to them and the firms agreed to do so. From July 1, 2011 through October 31, 2011, the Florio firm has an outstanding amount due of $59,663.37 and Zarwin Baum is due $72,590.82. These amounts do not include the bills for services rendered in November or for anticipated work in December. Under local law, we cannot issue payment to these firms without a contract in place. Through discussions with our DCA liaison and DCA's procurement specialist, it is advisable that the City issue six (6) month contracts to these firms (July 2011 through December 2011) to compensate them for the work they've already performed, and for work they will perform through the end of the year. Therefore, it is recommended that we issue six (6) month contracts to the Florio Firm in the amount of $90,000 and Zarwin Baum for $100,000 to compensate them for work they've already performed through October 2011, and to cover the anticipated bills for November and December.

In December, the Law Department will reissue an RFP for outside legal counsel services. As I mentioned previously, the Law Department is exploring various cost-saving initiatives, as well

as working to put processes in place to ensure that we eradicate the process-oriented problems this Department has had in the past.

CERTIFICATION I, Dilip Patel, of full age, hereby certify:

OF EMERGENCY

1. I am the Acting General Superintendent - Water. 2. On or about September 15,2011 it was reported by the Water Filtration Plant that the scrappers on both gravity thickeners had stopped working due to high torque. With both gravity thickeners out of operation the utility ran the risk of not being able to process solids which would ultimately cause the filtration plant to have to shut down. 3. Trenton Water Works CTWW) investigated the problem for electrical issues. Solids were removed and discharged to the sewer system. This caused problems with sewer operations. 4. TWW contacted BCHG to remove the solids from one ofthe thickeners and dispose of the residuals off site.
5. TWW determined that BCHG had the necessary experience and could provide the

required supervision, labor and equipment to perform the work. 6. The actions undertaken to have this emergency repair work done are in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40A: 11-6. 7. I certify that the foregoing statements made by me are true to the best of my knowledge and belief. I am aware that if any of the foregoing statements made by me are willfully false, I am subject to punishment.
