Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to approve Amendment Number 1 to the Professional Services Agreement with Stantec Consulting Services Inc. for Consulting and Expert Witness Services relative to Platt Convenience, Inc. v City of Ann Arbor.

To assist with the City's defense of the Platt Convenience lawsuit, the City retained Stantec Consulting Services for consulting and expert witness services because of its qualifications and experience providing similar expert services relating to stormwater rates for various municipalities across the country.
