The present firm has been the Menlo Park City Attorney for 60+ years. Is the opinion of Council member Mueller and Mayor Combs that this position should be awarded to the same firm in perpetuity? They were also the only members of the ad hoc committee which discussed recruitment for city attorney services pursuant to which the city put out the request for proposals for these services. So why the disagreement now? Kudos to Council members Nash, Taylor, and Wolosin for making this long-overdue change.
