During a special meeting Monday, May 9, the North Oakland County Fire Authority (NOCFA) Board of Directors approved using the legal services of Rita Lauer with a 4-0 vote. Longtime attorney David Lattie submitted his resignation in an Oct. 4, 2021 letter to the board. Lauer sought the position. Lauer resides in Rose Township and joined the law firm of Maddin Hauser Roth & Heller in April. Prior to that, she had been with Winegarden, Haley, Lindholm, Tucker and Himelhoch. NOCFA Chair George Kullis said, “She’s local, a Rose Township resident and she’s down to earth. Her fee is fair.” Kullis said she would be charging $175 per hour and since she’s local, she said she would not charge for travel. NOCFA board member Glen Noble suggested Kullis get her fee in writing in the contract. The NOCFA board will vote on a contract at its meeting in June.
