L.V. seeks attorney

By MARTHA McCLAIN

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.
