Kevyn Orr was paid about $70,000 for just over three months’ work as consultant to Atlantic City Emergency Manager Kevin Lavin, according to a spokesman for the state Attorney General's Office.

Orr was appointed by Gov. Chris Christie in January to assist Lavin in turning around Atlantic City’s troubled finances. He left his role in April.

In response to an Open Public Records Act request by The Press, spokesman Leland Moore said Lavin submitted invoices for his services totaling $67,323.

“That is expected to be the cost of his services,” Moore wrote.

The OPRA request also showed that the state is paying mediator Donald Steckroth $425 an hour, according to a March 19 letter sent to Steckroth from Acting Attorney General John Hoffman.

Steckroth will mediate talks between the city and other groups, such as casino operators and police and firefighter unions.
