DeKalb retains Frieders as city’s attorney

DeKALB – Dean Frieders will continue providing legal services to the city of DeKalb indefinitely after aldermen approved an indefinite contract with his legal firm.

The city will pay Frieders $17,340 a month – $208,080 annually – for legal services such as drafting agreements, representing the city in litigation, prosecuting ordinance violations and others matters. The rate is the same as in Frieders’ previous contract.

Frieders has provided legal services for the city since fall 2011 after the city decided to outsource its legal department.

The City Council previously renewed the contract on an annual basis. Under the new contract, approved Monday, the council will have the option to terminate the contract so long as it provides 30-days written notice.
