Calexico changes legal counsel

(Calexico City Council changes legal representation)…

No reasons were given. The Council met Tuesday evening. While in closed session, they voted 3-2 to dismiss the interim City Attorney Mark Austin, who is with the Rutan and Tucker Law Firm. The Council voted 3-2 to appoint the law firm of Best, Best and Krieger out of Riverside. They did not say if the appointment was temporary or permanent. Council members Maritza Hurtado and John Moreno voted against both actions. Hurtado said only councilman Armando Real had met with an unidentified representative of the newly appointed law firm. She said the other council members should have had an opportunity to meet and question the representative before the issue was placed on the agenda. Austin’s dismissal was immediate.
