The Longboat Key Town Commission agreed to move forward with a bid for a new town attorney at its regular meeting Monday night at Town Hall.
Town Manager Dave Bullock received direction Monday to place a bid for the services of a new contract attorney. The bid will be placed for 30 days before the town schedules one or two commission work sessions to review the firms that apply.
In total, it could take the commission four to six weeks to go through the process and select a new attorney.
Also at its regular meeting, the commission:
Forwarded to its March 4 regular meeting for second reading and public hearing:
