7.  ORDINANCE approving and authorizing agreement between City of Houston and HOLLAND & KNIGHT, 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, Holland & Knight, LLP ("Holland & Knight"), is a full service firm that includes a national public finance practice and has the necessary competence, qualification and experience to serve as bond counsel for the City.
