L.V. seeks attorney


Special to the PRESS

The search for new legal representation is underway in Laguna Vista following the resignation of attorney Janice Cassidy.

Cassidy resigned her posi­tion earlier this month.

In the interim, Weslaco-based attorney Ramon Vela was tapped by the City Coun­cil to serve the Town on an as-needed basis.

Vela has a 29-year practice in Weslaco and is well experi­enced in municipal law, Coun­cilman Bill Schnier said at the Town’s June meeting. Vela is expected to serve until such time as a new full-time attor­ney can be hired, officials said. The interim pay structure calls for a rate structure that includes a $250 monthly retainer, $200/ hour for municipal trials and $125/hour for pretrial prepara­tion and other services.
