Tamarac Interim City Attorney Hans Ottinot failed to disclose his lucrative legal consulting contract with the City of North Miami when applying for the permanent position. REDBROWARD obtained the November 2020 contract between HLA Consulting Group LLC and North Miami for legal consulting on matters involving private/public partnership developments and other land use issues. HLA Consulting Group LLC receives $2,500 per month for the contract which runs through September 2021. Florida business records show Hans Ottinot created HLA Consulting Group LLC in November 2020.

A review of Hans Ottinot’s bid to be the permanent Tamarac City Attorney shows no mention of HLA Consulting Group LLC or its lucrative deal with the City of North Miami.

Ottinot’s resume shows he served as North Miami city for two months in 2005.

And that’s it.

None of Ottinot’s client references are from the City of North Miami.

Not a single mention of HLA Consulting Group LLC?

Why Hans?
