After it was determined in court that the city would have to refund the more than $10 million the Beach Parking Impact Fund had accrued over more than 25 years, the court ruled that $2.6 million would be paid to the attorneys who sued the city. But one of the attorneys, Paul Rosenfield, claims he’s owed about $700,000 from the city in addition to the $2.6 million. During a closed-session portion of a meeting Tuesday, the city rejected his claim.
While the city reviews its options on the matter, city officials said this will delay the reimbursements of the BPIF, as they won’t know what the remaining total from the fund will be until the matter is settled.
