A city commission will meet today to consider a multimillion-dollar settlement proposed by Fleishman-Hillard to resolve a lawsuit that alleges that the public relations firm overbilled the city by $4.2 million, according to sources familiar with negotiations.
A spokesman for City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo would not disclose the amount but confirmed that Delgadillo plans to hold a news conference to announce a "major development" regarding the Fleishman lawsuit.
Sources familiar with the talks said Fleishman had made a "multimillion-dollar" offer. The proposal came after an audit commissioned by the city as part of the lawsuit estimated that the city probably would win $850,000, a high-level city official said.
