CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Poyner Spruill is pleased to announce Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles has appointed firm attorney J.M. Durnovich to the city’s Privatization/Competition Advisory Committee (PCAC). He will serve a two-year term.

Established by the Charlotte City Council in 1993, the PCAC monitors the progress of the city in implementing services contracting and asset management, recommending services and assets to be considered for competition and privatization and advising on ways to improve current contracted services with service delivery problems. The 11-member committee advises both the city council and city manager and can review the existing legal system for contracting and may develop and recommend local legislation to make modifications.

The PCAC also assists and advises the city on issues in implementing the goals and processes of the city council for services contracting and asset management, including review of requests for proposal, cost comparison methodologies, bid processes, etc. The committee also provides a resource regarding concerns about the fairness of any bidding processes, and as a result, may be asked to review bid proceedings and hear grievances from parties involved.

Durnovich is one of three PCAC members appointed by the mayor.

Durnovich’s practice at Poyner Spruill focuses on complex civil litigation. He represents clients facing a wide range of challenges, with a concentration in antitrust matters, whistleblower claims, government-related disputes, constitutional litigation and appeals. In addition, Durnovich regularly defends professional malpractice claims and handles a variety of construction disputes.

“I’m honored to have the chance to serve the community in this manner,” said Durnovich, who participated in his first PCAC meeting on Thursday, Dec. 13. “Civic duty is an important responsibility, and I’d like to thank Mayor Lyles for the opportunity to work with the other committee members to further the City’s mission. I look forward to rewarding her faith in me through dedicated service to the PCAC.”
