Eastvale released their City attorney at a special City Council meeting last night Monday, Oct. 16. City Attorney John Cavanaugh, who represented the municipality since it became a city in 2010, was voted out on a 4-0 vote. Councilman Adam Rush was absent.
Tessari said council members believed it was time for a change, according to local reports.
Tessari reportedly said that they needed to go with a firm that’s bigger and provides some of the services in hand that they need.
Cavanaugh was not a city employee, but worked on a contract through his firm, the Cavanaugh Law Group.
The same will occur, Tessari reportedly said. The city is seeking proposals Wednesday from law firms interested in representing the city. The application deadline is Nov. 16.
The Riverside firm of Varner and Brandt will represent Eastvale on an interim basis, according to reports.
