Kevyn Orr, the former Detroit emergency manager who was hired by Gov. Christie to advice on Atlantic City's fiscal crisis, billed the state at a rate of $950 per hour for his work, according to documents released by the state Attorney General's office late Wednesday.

Orr's total compensation was about $70,000 for about three months work, according to state officials. His hourly rate was subject to a discounted rate of 25 percent to $712.50 per hour if he was paid "in accordance with the New Jersey Prompt Payment Act. His contract allowed for up to 16 hours per week, but at either rate, he apparently worked no more than half that. He recently told reporters in Detroit that he'd been spending a lot of time at home with his children in recent months.

He was also permitted to put in for mileage, copying, telephone calls, and other expenses, but not meals.

Orr, who steered Detroit through its bankrutpcy, was hired in January as a consultant to advice Kevin Lavin, who has been serving in a daily basis as Atlantic City's emergency manager. He left the position at the end of April to return to his lawfirm, Jones Day, in Washington D.C.

Also released was the rate to be paid to retired U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Donald Steckroth, who will act as a mediator as Atlantic City seeks to restructure its debt. He will be paid $425 an hour, a rate described in his agreement as "not your standard hourly rate" and "a significant courtesy reduction."

The state has also hired Ernst & Young to do accounting work related to Atlantic City's crisis for a total of $250,000.

Atlantic City's mayor, Don Guardian, earns $103,000 per year. Guardian most recently filed a plan that calls for laying off about 200 city workers, mostly from the recreation and fire departments.
