Town Attorney Maggie Mooney-Portale is starting an office hour policy with Longboat Key commissioners.
In an email to commissioners Thursday, Mooney-Portale said “the purpose of establishing these hours is to make myself available to meet with commissioners for in person discussions. It is my hope that these hours will make it convenient for commissioners to discuss any legal issues or concerns you may have with me.”
Some Longboat Key commissioners have questioned the legal advice they have received from Mooney-Portale.
At the March 17 workshop, the commission discussed the town attorney and decided she needed more time before she is evaluated because she was on maternity leave.
Office hours for commissioners will be 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and 9:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. Wednesdays.
Mooney-Portale will bring a laptop with her and set up an office, most likely in the commission office. Office hours will begin Wednesday, April 9.
