Town Of Moraga

Council Review of Legal Fees – November 2019

The Council is taking proactive steps to improve its oversight of legal expenses and provide transparency to the public. They completed a performance evaluation of the Town Attorney that included a comprehensive review of legal expenditures over the last five years and a cost comparison of the Lamorinda cities. To better track legal expenses, the Council will be receiving quarterly reports from the Town Attorney as well as updates on any expenses that exceed $5,000 a month. The Council further directed the Town Attorney to work with the Town Manager to align fees for special legal services with Orinda and Lafayette’s rates.
