"The meter starts when you start talking to them," said Dennis Pool, an OPS assistant superintendent.

Pool examines Baird Holm's monthly invoices and talks to OPS administrators if he thinks they are too quick to call the law firm. In one case, he said, a division head was asking a lawyer a question nearly every day. Pool said he put a stop to that.
At the same time, he said, timely legal advice can protect taxpayers by heading off costly lawsuits or ensuring that a million-dollar contract is sound.
"It doesn't take many lawsuits where you make a bad decision and it costs the taxpayers more money," he said.

Officials with Omaha Public Schools, a leading supporter of the common-levy system, had not decided whether to follow other districts in adopting an alternative tax request, according to Dennis Pool, OPS fiscal administrator.

He said administrators and OPS legal counsel will brief the school board Monday on its options.
"We are unsure whether we have any legal authority to do this," he said.
Because state aid distribution for next year is already set, and linked to the common general fund levy, reverting to the old system of each district levying its own property tax and keeping the money would create problems, Pool said. The distribution of state aid, meant to equalize resources for districts, would not account for the return to the former way of levying school district property taxes, he said.
Some districts, Pool said, would likely see a financial windfall, "and there will be other districts, if in fact the 95-cent levy is not levied, who will face significant shortfall, Omaha Public Schools being one of those."
