|Approve the Amendment to the Contract with Adams and Reese, LLP for School Board Attorney (Business Division)|
|On October, 22 2013, the Board approved the contract with Adams and Reese, LLP, James Porter (partner), for School Board attorney services. In the contract, Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) agreed to evaluate the fee arrangement in six months from the date of contract.
The original flat monthly fee of $8,000 was based on an estimated requirement of 30 hours a month. A review of actual hours expended demonstrated more than 50 hours a month.
The amendment revises the monthly amount to $13,750 and will be reviewed at the end of the first year.
