More Legal Expenses Come Before Council
Placeholder Image
Legal expenses were again due before the Riverbank City Council at its regular meeting on Monday, March 26.

Director of Finance Marisela Hernandez recommended authorizing an additional appropriation of $89,658 to pay legal expenses incurred through February, mainly on the quo warranto case the council brought to remove Jesse James White from office and the Tuolumne quarry project protest that is said to be near settlement.

The bills reflect work that has been discussed with council and do not include legal expenses that have not been authorized, Hernandez said in her memo to council. But additional appropriations may be needed to fund expenses that will be incurred through June of this year. The money will be drawn from general fund reserves for legal services.

In a line item detail, Hernandez noted that for the quo warranto case, the city has paid $57,957 to date and owes $48,157.

In the case of the quarry project, the city has expended $105,877 to date (plus $21,000 in expenses) still and owes $43,240.
