Warner Robins delays appointing new city attorney
WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- The City of Warner Robins did not take action on appointing a new city attorney at the Monday’s city council meeting, but the mayor says the candidate for the job is very familiar with the area.
Mayor Randy Toms says she has been practicing law in Houston County for the past few years.
Toms says he has a 15-year friendship with the candidate and is excited about her potential.
Decisions on when the new city attorney will start were expected to be made Monday night after a closed session meeting.
Current city attorney, Jim Elliot, will stay in his position until the new attorney is up to speed on day-to-day responsibilities.
Toms says the new attorney will start off as a part-time employee until she is fully trained.
Mayor Toms also says it’s hard to find someone with as much experience as Jim Elliot, but he is excited to see what the new attorney will bring to the city.
