Former city attorney Edward Krawiecki, Jr has his old job back.
Mayor Art Ward got the unanimous backing of city councilors to install the former state House minority leader as the city's top lawyer, a post he held during former Mayor William Stortz's tenure.
Ward won backing to hire Tom Conlin as a full-time city lawyer, replacing Ann Baldwin, who retired last month.
Only city Councilor Kate Matthews opposed hiring Conlin. She said the city should advertise the job and make sure the best person is tapped for the $87,000-a-year job.
I'll have more on it later.
