City Council Agenda
Meeting Date: 06/18/2013  
Subject:    Amendment to the Interlocal Agreement with the City of Milton for Municipal Court Services
Presenter: Steve Kirkelie
Department: City Attorney's Office  

Information
Recommended Action
Approve an amendment to the interlocal agreement with the City of Milton for municipal court services pertaining to the costs of public defender services. 
Background
The City of Puyallup ("City") entered into an interlocal agreement with the City of Milton ("Milton") last year to provide municipal court services to Milton. The City began providing such services on January 1, 2013. As part of the agreement, Puyallup provides public defender services to indigent defendants who are appointed a public defender by the Milton Municipal Court judge. Milton pays Puyallup the entire costs for the public defender services.

To ensure Puyallup was obtaining qualified, yet economically-feasible public defender services for Milton, Puyallup published a request for proposals for public defender services specifically for Milton cases. The fees and costs associated with the attorney selected were lower than contemplated in the interlocal agreement between the City and Milton. Thus, the amendment that accompanies this agenda bill amends the interlocal agreement to be consistent with the actual amount the City is charging Milton for public defender services.
