It appears the Ames City Council will be in the market for a new lawyer. According to an addtional item added to Tuesday's agenda, the council will act on what's being called a voluntary separation agreement with City Attorney Judy Parks. With council approval of the agreement, Parks will retire from the City Attorney's office on amicable terms, having worked for the city for nearly 29 years. The council is being asked to approve a lump sum payment to Parks of more than $167,000, which includes a year salary, unused vacation and sick time. Parks was appointed City Attorney in April, 2013. She started in the office in 1988. The council will also be asked to name Mark Lambert as interim City Attorney retroactively from May 23rd.
