What do we know about the law firm that Carolyn is proposing (why she chose them, what’s her connection, what are their fees vs. Alan Jensen’s current fees, etc.) Atlantic Beach residents heard quite a few rumors/stories about how Carolyn is connected to this firm but I don’t think that matters and Atlantic Beach Now does not have the time to research the rumors. Prefer to rely on facts (which Woods never does) and they are: • The firm of Kopelousos, Bradley & Garrison, P.A is a firm located in Orange Park (Clay County). They are the current City Attorneys for the City of Orange Park, FL .
• Carolyn Woods has presented to the Commission their contract that they have with Orange Park (FYI- OP has 8,500 people vs. 12,500 in AB just to give you an idea of size comparison)
• Their fees as shown for Orange Park are as follows: $8,000 per month plus $200 hour. (I would hope they would hold these same fees for us even though AB is almost 50% larger than OP)
• Alan Jensen’s (our current City Attorney) current fees are as follows: $2,500 month plus $150 per hour Yes, you are reading this right.... Carolyn Woods is proposing that we FIRE OUR CITY ATTORNEY WITHOUT CAUSE AND THEN HAVE YOU AND I PAY FOR AN UNKNOWN INTERIM FIRM THAT COSTS OVER 320% MORE MONTHLY AND 25% MORE HOURLY THAN MR. JENSEN ARE WE SURE THIS IS NOT A WOODS PERSONAL VENDETTA WITH ALAN JENSEN. ARE YOU MAD YET?! FRUSTRATED? WILLING TO DO SOMETHING THAT WILL STOP THIS CRAZINESS?
