Uh oh Tamarac. You better sit down before reading the latest from Stephanie Kienzle at Earlier this month, Marlon Bolton and his Tamarac Commission cronies, Morey Wright Jr. and Kicia Daniel, reinstalled Hans Ottinot as Tamarac City Attorney. Ottinot is currently the City of North Miami Beach attorney.

Last week, Kienzle reported Ottinot received a flat fee of $60,000 per month by North Miami Beach. The flat fee covers Ottinot’s attendance at commission meetings. Any other legal work performed by Ottinot is extra.

Kienzle wrote:

According to the Minutes of the Meeting, McKenzie had hastily added “Discussion concerning the City Attorney Contract,” at which time he “requested Interim City Attorney Hans Ottinot to be promoted to the City Attorney and requested a vote on his contract for the City Attorney as $60,000 monthly rate with the same billable rate.”

If that weren’t horrific enough, here’s the part that should make your blood boil.

The City Attorney budget for Fiscal Year 2022 was $930,000 per year.

On October 1, 2021 (the beginning of FY22), Ottinot Law, PA was to be paid $55,000 a month, so his “flat fee” for the first seven months of FY22 was $385,000.

On May 1, 2022, his salary was increased to $60,000 a month, so his “flat fee” for the last five months of FY22 was $300,000.

In all, the total “flat fee” for Ottinot Law, PA during Fiscal Year 2022 should have been $685,000.

However (you might want to sit down for this), during Fiscal Year 2022, Ottinot Law, PA was paid an OBSCENE $1,189,759.37!

Hold on to your wallets and pocketbooks Tamarac voters!

    Yep, the Bolton circus continues and it seems he played his cards right in the latest election during which 2 new Commission members were voted in and immediately became a new voting block for Marlon allowing this city attorney “transition” to happen. So, the Tamarac government fiasco continues and was followed a week later by what Tamarac Talk has labeled as the throughly embarrassing “Seat Gate.” So, if you are looking for a nearby carnival show, feel free to attend any of the upcoming Tamarac Commission meetings.

    Let us see if Commissioners Daniel & Wright decide that they’ve been had…or decide that they LIKE being part of a majority voting block. Should they align themselves with Bolton, the people of Tamarac will not let them rest. Their first decision was expensive and poorly thought out. FOR SHAME!!! It won’t be that easy again.

    Hey Red Broward, why don’t you have a contest?? Ask your readers to post the most outrageous thing that they think that Marlon Bolton has done, (in their mind). Videos, tape recordings, etc., and offer a prize: Front row at a Tamarac Commission meeting? A day with the Commissioner? A tour of Tamarac City Hall? I am sure that the prize can be worked out.
