37.  ORDINANCE approving and authorizing agreement between City of Houston and MCCALL, PARKHURST & HORTON LLP for Bond Counsel Services for Various Departments; providing a maximum contract amount Pursuant to Texas Government Code Section 2254.1036, the following written notice is given to the public: The City desires to sell bonds for public purposes as authorized by State law and as further set forth in the ordinance to finance various public projects. The proposed bond counsel, McCall, Parkhurst & Horton, LLP ("McCall"), is a nationally recognized public finance law firm and has the necessary competence, qualification and experience to serve as bond counsel for the City. McCall has represented various issuers in connection with the issuance of various bonds and other obligations. The engagement of McCall is in the best interest of the City, since the legal services requested require specialized experience in municipal finance, federal tax, and state securities law and therefore cannot be adequately performed by the attorneys and supporting personnel of the City. Furthermore, such legal services cannot be reasonably obtained from attorneys in private practice for the payment of hourly fees without contingency because the City will not be obligated to pay any legal fees unless the transaction successfully closes.
