Council sets City Attorney hiring process

The Ames City Council has established a process for hiring a new City Attorney. After a review, the council determined Tuesday that it should continue to appoint and supervise the postion. The City Attorney will have to live in Ames and a grace period will be set to buy a home after hiring. The council declined to set a specific salary for the job, choosing to base pay on experience. A committee of City Council members, the City Manager, the Human Resources director, and the Mayor will determine finalists, who will then be asked to do a day-and-a-half's worth of interviews in the city. The City Attorney's job came open when Judy Parks retired last month.
