Breaking News! City To Appeal Decision
Contract City Attorney Tom Duarte reported out of the Closed Session this evening two items.
CITY ADDED TO ORIGINAL PETITION
First, on a 4-1 vote (Wendy Leece voted NO) the Council directed the City Attorney to amend the petition filed by City Clerk Julie Folcik, and "to add The City as a party to the petition, thereby ratifying the City Clerk's original filing of the petition".
CITY AUTHORIZED TO APPEAL DECISION
Also on a 4-1 vote (Leece again voting NO) "the Council provided the city with authority to appeal the lower court's decision earlier today".
MORE LEGAL FEES
So, I guess the Fat Lady has not yet sung on this one. The drama continues and that Jones Day meter just keeps on a'spinnin'. I guess it's a good thing the council approved using them on this case in the open session earlier in the evening, huh?
