City outside legal fees top $600k for second consecutive year

The outside legal fees for the first six months of FY 2018 once again topped $600,000. They were down from the same period last year, which set a record of $651,629.  In 2017, the city was fighting lawsuits regarding the Bayview Cross and Pitts Slip.  The city has appealed the Bayview Cross and a Washington D.C. firm is handling the case pro bono.
