Mayor David Thompson spent the first days of the New Year going through city council actions that have taken place since he was last in office. The mayor has some questions and concerns for the council members and members of the community. He has also been considering some difficult and different problems the council will be working on in the next four years.

Top of the mayor’s list of concerns is the amount of the city‘s legal fees over the last nine months.

City financial records indicate that over the last seven years the city paid out an average of $3,600 a year, or  $300 a month in legal fees. In the last nine months alone, the city accrued over $15,000 in legal fees. The mayor wants to make council members aware of the numbers they’ve been paying out on legal fees under the former administration.
