City to Hire Interim Counsel While Weighing Options

Spring Hill officials say they will hire an interim law firm to serve the city while the Board of Mayor and Aldermen decides how to find permanent counsel. The city does not have an attorney in place because the lawyer selected in July declined the position. The board is considering whether to select a firm that previously applied, ask for new applications or hire an in-house attorney, the Columbia Daily Herald reports. On Monday, board members voted to allow the mayor to hire a law firm for up to six months while they consider options.
