The City Attorney function was discussed by the City Council at the regular City Council meeting held on July 27, 1999.

Request for Proposals were sent to Law Firms in California and an open recruitment for an in-house City Attorney closed on November 5, 1999.  Interviews were held on December 21, 1999 to consider five candidates for an in-house City Attorney.

RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION:

Approve the classification description and salary range for the position of City Attorney and authorize the appointment of an in-house City Attorney and one support staff.  Authorize the transfer of funds from contractual services to salary and benefits expenditure accounts to support the funding of these classifications.  Funds for legal services have been included in the approved 1999-2000 City Budget.

COMMENTS:

The recommended salary range for City Attorney is $91,800 - $111,500 per year based upon salary survey information.  This survey information was provided to the City Council for consideration at its July 27, 1999 meeting.

The Mayor has extended a conditional job offer to the top candidate for the in-house City Attorney classification.

The City Attorney will determine the need for support staff at a later date.  It is anticipated that the salary and benefits expenditure for support staff will not exceed $65,000 per year.
