  1. A little more digging shows that, so far, San Leandro has been relatively lucky. Following Meyers Nave advise, the city of Half Moon Bay a few years ago prevented a property owner from developing her property. The owner sued, and eventually got a judgement of over $36 MILLION. Half Moon Bay got rid of Meyers Nave, but it was too late for them. It’s not for us.

    So Marga, do you know what that city pays for William’s basic services (you know, even just being present at every council meeting)? How much would a full time atty cost?

    • I do not. We’re waiting for the City to send us the numbers. For some reason they’re being slow in responding to that request.

      • Morgan Mack-Rose says:

        I wish school districts could share a full time atty…It would probably be more cost effective than hourly contracts. I think our superintendent brought that up at a county meeting of superintendents but no one seemed interested. The lack of coordinated services offered through the County Office of Education is really disheartening.

        • I agree!

          BTW, I found what seems to be the last agreement between the City and Meyers Nave. I updated the article with the link & summary. Basically, we pay her $30K a month to do the basics. Whether she actually does them is questionable.

    For a quick comparison, in 2009, Alameda, with a staff of 13, paid $1,135,119, and Hayward, with a staff of 10 paid $1,011,521, for their Legal Departments.
