TOWNSHIP OF SCOTCH PLAINS RESOLUTION 98-1 EXPLANATION: This Resolution authorizes the Law Firm of Bivona, Cohen, Kunzman, Coley, Yospin, Bernstein & DiFrancesco to continue to represent the Township of Scotch Plains on certain legal matters.

WHEREAS, by Resolution No. 98-1 the Township Council of Scotch Plains retained the services of Bivona, Cohen, Kunzman, Coley, Yospin, Bernstein & DiFrancesco, as Township Attorney for Scotch Plains; and

WHEREAS, on January 1, 1999, a new Township Attorney was appointed by the 1999 Township Council of Scotch Plains; and

WHEREAS, certain matters which were being handled by the Bivona, Cohen firm are or will be nearing completion during the course of 1999; and

WHEREAS, the complexity and extent of work previously performed on certain matters by the Bivona firm warrants continued utilization of the Bivona firm on a limited number of cases; and

WHEREAS, the Township of Scotch Plains will require the services of the law firm on these matters during 1999; and

WHEREAS, the Local Public Contracts Law (N.J.S.A. 40A:11-1, et seq.) requires that the resolution authorizing the award of a contract for professional services without competitive bids must be advertised;


by the Township Council of the Township of Scotch Plains, Union County, New Jersey,

that Bivona, Cohen, Kunzman, Coley, Yospin, Bernstein & DiFrancesco, 15 Mountain Boulevard, Warren, New Jersey 07059, be appointed as Special Council retroactive from January 1, 1999 through December 31, 1999.

This contract is awarded without competitive bidding as a “professional service” under the provisions of said Local Public Contracts Law because the services are of such a qualitative nature and will not permit the receipt of competitive bids due to the subjective difference in the work product of such persons and the fact that the ethical requirements of such profession will not permit such bidding; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Mayor and Clerk are hereby authorized to sign any and all contract documents with the firm of Bivona, Cohen, Kunzman, Coley, Yospin, Bernstein & DiFrancesco after a mutually acceptable agreement has been prepared by the Township Attorney based on cost projections provided by the Bivona law firm.

The availability of funds in connection with this Resolution and said contract is subject to and contingent upon final passage and adoption of the 1999 Budget by the Township Council of the Township of Scotch Plains.

A copy of this resolution shall be published in The Times as required by law within ten (10) days of its passage.
