Months back the city council voted and agreed that they would start the search for their own attorney. Last night they vote 6 to 1 to hire their own counsel, they did not ask for this because they wanted to be special they asked because there are some serious issues that they are concerned about. They need to have their own lawyer that they could go to when, and if they needed a second opinion, and maybe just maybe since our mayor was kind enough to let us all know that the arbitration is not over with yet between the city, and the police department maybe they can ask this attorney to get the transcripts to see what has been going on in there. Councilwoman Horvath said it best months back when she said it’s like mom and dad getting a divorce they can not have the same lawyer representing them.
Councilwoman Agius made a fuss over this saying that this was the first she heard about this, that is not true, they have discussed this at council meetings before, and they voted on it while she was there, so to make the statement for the camera that she did not know about it is not true. Not only that they get their packets in advance of the council meetings so if she would have taken the time to read her packet she would have seen what was there, I wish she would show so much outrage for all the lawsuits going on in the city right know, or outrage at our assistant mayor costing the city $4,500.00 in legal fees because of her and a former employee John Doe lawsuit. She doesn’t bat an eyelash at this, but she has the nerve to question the hiring of a lawyer for the council that includes her.
